    I have been working at A. Daigger full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work around At times hard work pays off

    Cons

    The president of the company doesn't know what hes doing and you will have a new boss every three months. The company lost a lot respect in the industry which makes selling harder. Company is not doing well, and blame is placed on low level employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at A. Daigger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people that work there. Made some good friends. That is about it.

    Cons

    Low pay for what you do. Everyone does work for more than one person and they don't get noticed for it. The more you do, the more they dump on you. The management treats everyone like dirt. If you want to move up, this is not the company to work at.

    I have been working at A. Daigger for less than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly culture, lot to learn. Medium size company get to communicate/work with various departments. Work/life balance is great. Has good opportunities for new people to learn. I come from Bsc in Chemistry, and have a MBA so for me to fit into to this company and starting out in Marketing was a great experience. Fun job overall.

    Cons

    Medium size company have a big competitor pressure, always trying to make adjustments and improve on how they work. Best way to obtain more experience at this company is to ask for more work.Speaking with different groups and managers and seeking other work besides your work load is what worked for me. Enjoyed working and doing different aspects of the job.

    I worked at A. Daigger full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed the peers I worked with. I met some outstanding personnel there. Most left already. Being a small business ,you have the opportunity to cut through some of the red tape to do your work.

    Cons

    I lost trust once I seen how things are handled at this Company.Ask a lot of questions if you interview before accepting and get it in writing any promises offered.This Company is a game changer in the middle of the game on how they attempt to change strategies.
