    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe upper management is doing a great job and they are all extremely friendly if you give them a chance and dont meet them with the assumption they are "above" your level; they might be in pay grade a position but they are all people nonetheless. They put in more hours then anyone in this company.

    Overall this company is built to last and designed to grow the company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis company is a tight ship. No money is spent that doesn't need to be. During the economic downturn this company made quick nimble decisions that allowed the company to keep growing in spite of the ecnomic storm. I have a lot of respect for that. From an employees perspective it is somewhat militaristic in its management disciplines. I suppose that is just old school philisophy. Despite that, there are feedback loops for employees to give thier feedback about how to improve the company and I have myself seen the benefits of these ideas in motion. There does seems to be tolerance for work-life balance and valuation of family life, however I have also seen plenty of people work many hours past 40/week as well.

    ConsDecisions seem to be made primarily to grow the empire. All decisions stem from that perspective. As well, certain parts of the company seem to operate in silos rather that collaborating cooperatively.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecisions seem to be made primarily to grow the empire. All decisions stem from that perspective. As well, certain parts of the company seem to operate in silos rather that collaborating cooperatively. This lack of communication between units causes inefficiencies and frustrations. As well, there could be more frequent communication to all employees about the company's economic position. Most employees would also like to see a 401k option that allows employees to invest in the company stock.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
