    I worked at Walton Signage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many of the upper management are educated, quality people. The company does many things for the employees: Quarterly BBQ's where family, clients, vendors are invited, ongoing education. The company has/had several programs serving the community, and were certified as a training facility for people who are looking to advance or begin a career in the fabrication industry.

    Cons

    The CEO is ultimately concerned with one thing: whatever puts money in his pocket, and at this point is pretty uninvolved in the day to day operations. If you had a reunion of the all the people who worked there and helped make the CEO a multi-millionaire, and then he fired them,most buildings would not be big enough! There is no shame in being fired by Walton Signage, because many people in the signage industry have been!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micro managing of the staff, multiple emails, meetings, more meetings, more emails. Tell GW to stop pushing the Landmark Forum. Watch your step.....he will fire you to in a minute if he thinks it will put money in his pocket (CEO)

    I have been working at Walton Signage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Sales team is doing great things and some awesome new accounts are coming in and allowing the PM team to grow. Walton has an aggressive growth plan and is very customer focused. We pay our vendors in 15 days which allows us to develop a nationwide partnership with our vendors and a key reason we produce the results we do.

    Cons

    I would be great if the PM teams were able to sit together in one area, that would create an even stronger team bond.

    Pros

    The workspace cubicles aren't the worst I've seen. For the most part I enjoyed the people I worked with. They have pretty good cupcakes at the monthly company meeting.

    Cons

    There is definitely a glass ceiling at Walton with no chance to move up in the company. Once you have negotiated your salary and position you will be stuck. You will not be treated like an adult and if you work 60 hours a week you might get a better title like senior program manager and an increased work load.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is for the most part uninvolved. Middle management is a select group of bitter lifers who will micro manage the heck out of you and not trust you enough to exercise your professional skill set.

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Horrible management
    Misrepresentation
    Will promise the moon deliver the sewer
    Employee training is mandatory LandMark Forum training, AKA Cult indoctrination, AKA predecessor to Scientology indoctrination. Seriously, they make all management & anyone wanting to become management attend ongoing LandMark Forum cult classes to confess your weaknesses & acclimate to the "culture"

    Cons

    Management could care less about employees
    Benefits are a joke
    Compensation is pitiful especially after cost of benefits
    Owner is active devotee of LandMark Forum

    Advice to Management

    The leader is a smarmy used car salesmen and runs his business the same.

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time

    Pros

    Massages, perks, technology, Vacation, people

    Cons

    Can't trust what they say, will do anything to fill the CEO's pockets, hires sales people for the contacts and then dumps them, lies to prospective employees, Landmark and Gap International brainwashing.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the two long term senior management people. They are the reason for the lack of growth and high turnover. Take your blinders off Gary, they aren't as good as you think they are and they are whats holding the company back and giving it a bad name.

    Pros

    Decent graphics and workmanship on signs. They do try to meet deadlines. They have good benefits and are good to most employees.

    Cons

    They will lie to get the business, i.e. A.A.F.E.S. They do not hold up to standards on competitive wages. They don't inspect the product going out like they should.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many chiefs and not enough Indians within this company. There are people in management positions that do not belong there.

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time

    Pros

    Quality products are manufactured for clients. Attempts are made to create an employee culture.

    Cons

    Wow, ask about the turnover rate which is in excess of 35% for sure and 100% for executives. There is no unifying culture is real sense of teamwork. Landmark culture is rampant among CEO and his devotees. Awkward place to work for sure.

    Pros

    You get to work with a dream team and be a part of a fast growing and progressive company. It's a place for high performers who like to achieve extraordinary results.

    Cons

    If you are not a high performer or up for dynamic growth and challenge - this would not be the place for you. It is a place for full engagement - for those who have growth as a core value.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
