A lot of advancement opportunities
Office Manager / Procurement (Former Employee) – Burlington, WI – March 13, 2014
My wife was transferred back to Kansas City for work, so I left Echo Lake a few weeks ago after being there 4 years. It's a big company, but it's family owned, so it is not a really "corporate" atmosphere.
Lots of room for advancement - I was hired on as an assistant, and ended up with the managers job within a year. There are basically no impediments to success if you want to learn and put in the time.
I didn't have a bad experience with the management or with anybody I worked with, but I understand personalities sometimes clash.
The amount of work experience I gathered there has really given me the tools and skills I lacked before I started. I have two offers in the Kansas City area now that I know wouldn't be possible without the skills I learned there.
Good benefits, opportunities for advancement
Long hours at times, was a long commute for me (I lived in Woodstock)
