    Pros

    Great group of employees. Everyone is hardworking and committed to their job

    Cons

    Like many public companies, it is profit driven. Continues to ship more and more of the work overseas to increase margins. Little effort is put into growing the people.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to the community you are a part of. Hundreds of jobs have been lost in an effort to achieve higher profits. Shed yourselves of your sweatshop mentality and grow something that matters.

    Pros

    Business is on a sharp growth curve and has been consistently throughout a tough recession
    Good people who are willing to take on more responsibilities can do so if they step up

    Cons

    Management is primarily focused on stock value
    Employee satisfaction is probably lowest on the list of priorities to management
    Quality control is seriously lacking
    Lack of scalability - No real interest in process and optimization

    Advice to Management

    Sooner or later, the 30, 40 percent growth curve will slow. Prepare for this by optimizing the business with better processes, top notch people, and quality control procedures. That way, your customers will be happier with solid products, employees will be more fulfilled, and your stock value won't tank like it did last time you mismanaged the business.

  6. Unfocused and poorly led.

    Cons

    Greedy bottom line focused, poor, poor selection in Senior Management. Did not listen to employees at all.

    Advice to Management

    Whole sale replacement of the management team might get thing going in the right direction, not sure anythign less would work!
