I worked at CastleBranch full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Lot's a of social gatherings, nice people to work with and great schedule.

Cons

Pay and benefits are horrific! Stay away if you need to live alone or support a family. Temporary employees and permanent employees make the same amount. No bonuses at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better systems company wide and pay people more than peanuts.

    I worked at CastleBranch full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k matching, vacation, healthcare etc for full time permanent employees only. Lots of celebrations and food days. Everyone is very nice. If you are good at repetitive tasks day after day it will give you good office experience for your next job.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, low pay for the type of work, volume driven production required. They hire lots of people for the summer and then fire lots in the fall. You have to go fast and have good accuracy and you might become permanent.

    I have been working at CastleBranch

    Pros

    Some team leaders are flexible with needed time spent out of work. It is nice to have a laid back dress code.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. Management makes a tremendous amount more than everyone else. Yearly raises include are about .30-.60 cents for most employees?!? Some positions are not even needed within the company, Many positions require a hight amount of responsibility and accountability with very little pay compared to other companies with similar positions. There are 'budget concerns,' yet frivolous spending happening constantly...i.e. private plane that is mostly used for upper management's personal (not the as-intended, company-wide business) trips. Initial training is not very good. There is hardly any organization within the company. It's basically a learn-as-you-go type of deal for all departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It feels that the leadership at Castle Branch is more focused on the profit than employee retention, growth, or overall happiness at the company. There is a high turnover rate with this company due to the inadequate income, benefits, and career growth provided to employees. It is discouraging to work really hard to help a company grow then have someone with less education and less work experience make the same amount of income as you.
