    Too many chiefs, and too many OLD chiefs.

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIndependence with your job roll, but needed disipline for weekly results.

    ConsLack of leadership and no communication from Ops.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore support and training is needed across the board and mainly in the office handling exsisting customer concerns and requests.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company, dirty work, not many opportunities for advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStable company that will be here for years, don't have to worry about the company closing. or being layed off.

    ConsMost of the hiring of management comes from outside. They do not promote within the company very often. Recently hired COO, and several VP's all from outside companies.

    Raises are 3% per year, no matter how hard you work. Recent email from Human Resources clearly defines this. With current cost of living increases of around 2.7%, the 3% raises really don't amount to much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to promote from within. No one knows the business as well as the people already working there. There are many skilled and hard working individuals with 5, 10 and 15 years in the same position who would love to be considered for a promotion.

    My other piece of advice would be to base raises on performance, not just 3% across the board.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Big brother attitude overseeing you work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsDecent benefits. The work is hard and the job should be around for some time. The city is working with the company to build a new plant for biofuel.

    ConsWages are a little low for the area. Big brother watching. Lots of new rules and paper work. Word of mouth is the only way of finding out anything. Poor training, learn as you go. Hours are long.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the workers do their jobs and be more encourageing not looking for wrong doings. Show some kindness just hello would go a long way. More information of the new going ons would be nice.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very hard work and underpaid and appreciated

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey are union which offers some assistance to keeping the management on a level field. They also offer a 401K plan and a pension thru the unions. The health plans are okay just alittle expensive to pay for.

    ConsPoor management, no communication, all about the numbers. It's growing too fast and its taking away from the employees. It is no longer an employee friendly company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to the basics and forget about the numbers. Communicate better with the employees and be more of the employee and family friendly company it once was and not the conglomerent that it has become.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
