Investment Compnay
sales (Former Employee), IowaFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: good people in the organization
Cons: worst corporate involvement i've ever seen in over 30yrs of working
Operates like an investment company. Only concerned with profit.
Reacts like the Federal Government, slow and inefficient. Company has no real business plan. Management does almost nothing to support people working at the Branch level. They act like hey we give you a job and a building to work from go make sales.
No Corporate buying structure so you cannot but products at a competitive level to compete.
Had to turn down sales all the time because it wasn't profitable enough for the management.
In short Corporate Office does very, very little to support the sales at local branches.
The Companies growth all comes from buying other smaller companies that are struggling or going out of business. They do not know how to be competitive in a market and grow a business.
If they have a branch that is struggling they not only don't know how to rebuild it they act like they really don't care.

Family own company
Corporate Auditor (Current Employee), East Dubuque, ILApril 17, 2014
Pros: get to travel the country and meet some amazing people.
Cons: do not have much of a social life outside of work, pay is below industry average, company is operating with very old software and run office '03
Travelling two to three weeks per month. Normally three weeks. Can become a lot of driving while using your own car. They will reimburse you the tax deductible amount though. Management is great. They are very hands off if you get your work done. Training is a bit of a joke since they wont show you how to do anything unless you ask questions about it. Most people in the company will help you out with anything you need but there is still a lot of talking behind backs. Do not expect vacation time until after at least a year of working there.

Supportive family-centered corporate company
District Credit Supervisor (Former Employee), Anchorage, AlaskaFebruary 20, 2013
Pros: supportive corporate office employees.
Cons: four hour time difference from the corporate office.
Alaska is four hours away from the corporate office, so many mornings are started by getting caught up on messages from the corporate office before lunch time in Alaska.
I learned you aren't a number in this big corporation.
My co-workers supported each other.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with a salesman who used the "F" word openly as a noun, verb, adjective, and it was allowed and encouraged by the manager.
The most enjoyable was traveling to the corporate office for training, and being welcomed with open arms.

communication gap between corporate
and branch locations is large!

Local business with national locations
Corporate Auditor (Current Employee), East Dubuque, ILJuly 2, 2012
Pros: small company where you know and recognize people.
Cons: the communication gap between upper management and middle management.
Crescent is a good, small local corporation. It began in Dubuque, Ia and has grown nationally. The most enjoyable part about my current position is meeting the branch employees. It's nice to connect with the branch level where all the sales and transaction happens and see what Crescent is all about.
