    High employee turn over rate

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPrivately owned, so have the flexibility to try new things. Owner extremely dedicated to company and environmental issues. Owner committed to supplying the necessary capital requested by upper management to grow the company.

    ConsHigh employee turn over rate. Many reorganizations. Hire a lot of executives that are not familiar with the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake it a point to compliment employees on their strengths and accomplishments, rather than just criticizing them for mistakes. Allow more opinions from field service and outside sales on the directions the company should be heading.

    Great Values. Shaky Future.

    Product Manager (Former Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsVery family oriented business that treats its employees very ethically and fairly.

    ConsLimited or inconsistent chance for advancement where more responsibility is not always rewarded. Lots of personnel turnover in the past few years - most with little positive effect.
    The biggest challenge is that the company's technology portfolio doesn't really offer a clear future for the company or its employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company needs to expand its technologies to create more opportunities for its future and that of its employees. The company also needs to be more consistent in accepting and following through on the bringing new ideas into the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
