    Pros

    The pros to working at BBB are the almost free cable and their benefits package given how small the organization is. Neither is great, but at least they continue to try and provide for their employees in that capacity. They also participate in and support many local nonprofit and recreational programs. Very cool! They offer a tuition assistance program for college students and most of the time will support other training opportunities as well. There is a very small town feel within the company which is good and bad. They hire friends without experience over qualified people which is a drag, the good ol’ by network is a drag.

    Cons

    The core issue is that the highest level of the organization is unable to hear the truth and upper management does not value integrity and honesty. Upper managers seek to avoid accountability for their decisions and areas to improve that will showcase those poor decisions, at all costs. This has created a very unethical and defeating culture for those with character and motivation to make a difference because they are seen as a threat. The company is constantly hiring because the leaders of the company do not possess the skills to develop their employees. It is common that the managers with the lease amount of character and skills are the ones promoted because they will do what they are told and not ask questions.

    The company is the first to deploy technologies but also usually the first to retract them because the product development and deployment practices are very weak and they don’t have any technical experts on staff. It is not uncommon to see front line employees working through the night on a project for many months after upper management has already celebrated the project’s completion.

    My advice is that if you are looking for a job that does not challenge you, supports the blaming of others, values poor processes that never get fixed, and unethical decision making at the higher levels, this company is for you. If you possess integrity and are interested in improving any aspect of the organization be careful, because if any of what you seek will point out any need for improvement in other departments, which it will, you will not last long. They will simply view your ideas as a threat and will cast you out instead of accepting accountability and improving.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is that that owner needs to move on and turn the company over to someone with integrity and real leadership experience, clear out the unethical upper managers and hire people with a desire to change things for the better and know how to develop their employees. Pay your front line managers and employees what you know they deserve. Stop telling them that they are paid appropriately for what they do and what the region requires, they know better than that and we all know the company can afford it.
