All-around unpleasant experience
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Algonquin, ILNovember 14, 2017
Unfortunately, my experience working here has been unpleasant due to the false promises given at the time I was recruited for my position. The compensation is less than what I was told and there are constantly issues with the company. They experience IT issues daily. Purchasing constantly produces back orders on high demand products, and management here is impersonal and inexperienced.
In addition to these things, there is little to no room for career advancement.

Low pay, unrealistic expectations
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Algonquin, ILAugust 28, 2017
Having an extended background in accounts payable this place is a MESS. The compensation was super low for their high demands. Super unorganized personal accounts, overhead bills and company bills all mixed and unmatched. Over 1,000 + documents unfiled. Super chatty team that seems to only judge people and not work. No wonder it's only temps. Good luck, this place is falling apart. They need to restructure the whole department and separate accounts from over head bills, companies and employe/temps.
Pros
Lunch break, vacation days
Cons
Low compensation, high demands

Excellent and professional growing company
Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Algonquin, ILJanuary 3, 2017
This company has shown steady growth every year, even despite this tough economy. They continue to create new positions as needs arise and don't overwork their employees.

The Leadership team is very focused and has made great strides in correcting issues from previous administrations (2013 and before).

Everyone is very professional: No micro-managing or people looking over your shoulder. When issues do occur, there is no "blaming" or "finger-pointing". People and teams come together to solve the issue, fix root causes, and move forward.

Teams here are like family and genuinely like each other and get along. There are a lot of perks to working at Young. Plus, the products we sell are the best in the market. It's great to go to the dentist and hear how they love our products!
Pros
Great culture, lunches often provided, people are nice and professional
Cons
Pay is a little lower

good work / life balance but.....
Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Algonquin, ILAugust 27, 2016
If you are looking to advance with in this company, don't waste your time applying. Unless you know someone you will be stuck in the same position permanently.

The management have their favorites and everyone else is just "shut out".


Work environment is hostile and has a "high school" atmosphere. not very professional.

Pay is decent, but you have to wait over a year and a half to even be considered for a measly raise.

very discouraging, they pile on the work and don't aknowledge your hard work.
Pros
work / life balance
Cons
insurance, atmosphere, job growth

Disorganized business with poor leadership
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Algonquin, ILMay 11, 2016
If you enjoy being left in the dark, this is the place for you. Grossly unprofessional upper-management sets multiple teams up for failure with vague, ever-changing direction, expectations, and vision. Lacking strategy and real-world experience leads to blatantly ripping off competition without any real investigating, understanding, or identification of true objectives. While this company is small, employees are broken down to a number and forced to stand in line.

Turnover is incredible - the revolving door is nearly a blur as many are hired and choose to leave quickly or are let go. Restructuring has led to many very recent layoffs and downright pitiful morale. My advice? Trust the reviews on indeed/glassdoor and RUN. This is a sinking ship.
Pros
Affordable insurance
Cons
Rocky climate, poor leadership, unprofessional management

Good place to work
Product Analyst (Former Employee) –  Algonquin, ILMay 9, 2016
The company is very flat in terms of hierarchy so there is no where to climb from your initial position unless the company is expanding or someone exits the company. Employees are all generally very kind and there is very little organizational politics. Flexible work arrangements and the healthcare benefits are very good.

Good for gaining experience
Account Manager/Specialist (Former Employee) –  Algonquin, ILJanuary 23, 2013
This is a lean company. Young and fresh talent is brought in and worked hard for a lower than normal compensation. This is a family based company and you need to be very careful of politics.
However - it is a wonderful way to get your foot in the door and gain experience in a field of interest.
Work environment is calm and quiet with high stress levels. Most of the employees are younger and right out of college.
Pros
beautiful facility and large staff
Cons
not much room to advance
