    Pros

    the people are great to work with (mid management and below). overall a good place to work.

    Cons

    for people on office hours there is not enough offered for work/life balancing. there used to be a 9-80 schedule worked, but it was stopped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to genuinely listen to the people--don't just go through the motions by taking surveys and doing nothing. really listen to what is going on day to day and react.

    Pros

    Small-company atmosphere with lots of flexibility, freedom, and autonomy in work tasks; attitude at operations facility level of willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done and satisfy the customer. Lots of great people committed to doing a great job and helping out across departmental lines.

    Cons

    Con of a small-company environment: opportunities for advancement beyond 1st-line management comparatively few and far between. Some upper management isolation and apparent lack of understanding of actual working-level operations i.e. what it takes (and what the challenges are) to get the job done on a recurring basis. Integration of acquired businesses relatively immature to date -- more 'silos' than integrated business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beware risks and hidden costs of minimal department staffing levels -- low depth and/or combined roles in key areas may present problems over time. Articulate more strategic vision to provide appropriate emphasis beyond current quarter and year performance.
