    I have been working at Austin Industries full-time

    Pros

    The pay was was decent, and the worst was enjoyable when you're allowed to do your job

    Cons

    The office politics play a big part in keeping smart effective people from being able to do their job because so many people are too concerned with making sure you "pay your dues" like they did. The culture went from being really supportive and family-like to every man for himself. Managers were more concerned with throwing people under the buss to cover up the fact that they failed, than doing their job and avoiding failure in the first place.

    I have been working at Austin Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Austin Industrial lives by the core values of safety, quality, integrity and employee ownership every day. They truly put their money where their mouth is. Leadership is tough but fair, cultivating a strong company culture who is focused on delivering results. As a young professional, they have been supportive of my growth and development from the start.

    Cons

    Insurance is less than stellar, employee-ownership means higher levels of buy-in across the organization, creating more competition and higher expectations. Top-down communication is improving.
