    Pros

    Great bunch of people Very clear expectations Management was responsive and ready to help when vendor/client issues were escalated

    Cons

    Layoffs - I blame the economy more than the company, though. It's easy to understand why layoffs have to happen, but sad to see our jobs shipped out of the country. I loved working at this company, would have stayed indefinitely had the layoffs not occurred.

    Advice to Management

    Keep jobs in the U.S. - it may cost more, but domestic staff can provide better service to domestic customers.


  2. Great to start, sad at finish!

    I have been working at Navarre full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Casual work environment, flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Downsizing raises concern over job, morale is getting bad

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, promote on merit.

    Pros

    Lean staff means having lots of hats to wear, and lots of varied responsibility, and rare (if any) boring days.

    Cons

    Small organization, so not a lot of room for advancement. Staff is so lean, that it is difficult to take time away, even though the management is supportive of time off.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage a positive work environment. Be creative about recognizing/rewarding hard work. Encourage departments and people to solve problems together, and not in a vacuum.
