Suggestions for improvement

  • C&S provides little to no work/life balance. As a former employee, I was discouraged going to work everyday. While the company seems to try to establish a positive work environment, their management is mediocre at best & in my opinion does not being those visions to fruition. As a salaried employee, you are expected to just “get it done,” which would be okay, if you weren’t expecte to “get done” theee people’s work.

What I like about the company

I liked that the company had a vision for the community and engaged the employees with the volunteer opportunities.

What I dislike about the company

Mostly everything else, aside from the companies dedication to the community was pretty awful.

Suggestions for improvement

  • cleaner - more parking - healthy air quality - handicap accessable

What I like about the company

I enjoy working with teammates all over the US.

What I dislike about the company

In our personal office building, the fact that it is run down and we get hand me downs from other facilities. It is not handicap friendly.

  • The HR department is garbage. They are slow to respond and that department doesn't match the quality of the other departments. We've had excellent candidates apply and then stop pursuing employment with our company because getting someone to respond is close to impossible. Getting health insurance, 401k info or employee support is close to impossible. That department is by far the biggest issue for the whole company.

What I like about the company

There is room to make a lot of money. The teams are also wonderful, but they work hard! They were supportive of my maternity leave and welcomed me back with a smooth transition into a normal workload again.

What I dislike about the company

They need to respond to their team members who ask for help with heavy work loads. Sometimes management gets comfortable with a stressed out team knowing we can "barely handle" the work load rather than hiring an additional team member to alleviate pressure off of the whole team.

  • More flexible schedules or opportunities to work from home.

What I like about the company

C&S is a very charitable company. They also offer volunteer opportunities in the community.

What I dislike about the company

I can really only speak to my department, not the company as a whole. I feel as though not everyone is treated as part of the team.

  • More to do outside. There's a big field area that could be easily turned into a pleasant place for people to walk or eat on breaks.

What I like about the company

We have an environment that supports building friendships and connections across departments. The social events that are put on are always something to look forward to

What I dislike about the company

For my department, there's really not much to speak of outside of personal disagreements which will happen anywhere. We get good support to do what we want to do.

  • This company needs a union. The Managers and Supervisors do not help. There should be a neutural party to accommodate employees.

What I like about the company

This company was really great at one time with raises before it was bought by the current owner.

What I dislike about the company

I work the damage OS&D we are underpaid. We take alot of crap for the damages that aren't caused by us. The people that make this mess is not held accountable.
