    The company is disorganized and is investing in too many things

    Finance (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsThe company has some great technology and manufacturing capabilities. They specialized in LEAN and the Toyota Process System. We produced some great products and ideas for products.

    ConsWe did not know how to deliver. We preferred to plan, re-plan and then explain to Louisville about our plan but were never held accountable for not delivering our plan. We never hit our targets, we blamed everything on the customers or lack there of. We were quick to have an excuse. We also always wanted to invest in every new technology that we could sell, but never enough investment to make a difference in any one technology. We were great at research, but poor at development.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick one or two areas for pursuit, and kill off the rest. Pick one or two horses to win, not the whole field. The management has too many layers. Why do we have so many VPs, Sr. Directors, Directors, and Managers? Do we have any employees?

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

    Good People to work with, Inconsistent Corporate Direction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsThe opportunity to create new products to serve an important market within the military and security community.

    ConsConstant change of focus as to the company's near term direction and goals. The location is in one of the worst areas of the city so it is a fair commute if you want to live in a decent neighborhood.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some time on the other side of the wall in order to get a clue as to what is going on within your company. There are less than 250 total employees, you don't need a president, 6 Vice Presidents, 10 Department Managers and a Plethora of Specialists

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

    Complacent and lacking spirit of innovation

    IA Engineer (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsAllowed me to make meaningful connections within related industries. Achieved personal and career growth within an excellent team of colleagues and middle management.

    ConsSenior leadership were too isolated from the organization to communicate effectively. The end result was turnover and failed projects. Interdepartmental politics were crippling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFoster organizational innovation, don't stop chasing improvement, but don't make change the scapegoat for universal failure.

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

    Stuggling to stay relevant

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsMidcap company with good corporate owners. Local management seemingly capable, employing latest management concepts.

    ConsCompany has lost market share and has undergone numerous management changes from mid level through senior positions. Seemingly unstable work environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on core CCA mfg business

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

    There is the Syrpis way, and the Right way.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsGreat location to work; some great employees, very knowledgeable.

    ConsExecutives have no respect for efforts of others, and organization has lost its identity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop blaming subordinates for performance deficiencies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
