    I worked at Gale full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with--most of them. That's about it. I would say flex time and the work at home program but they took the work at home program away for several employees and flex time could be on it's way out now.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Indecisiveness, the most uninspiring, non-out-of-the-box directors and managers I've ever seen. Cover yourself syndrome is the order of the day. Status quo is ok, even though they just came out of bankruptcy. Nothing was learning by those in authority in the process. Layoffs are done with no thought process whatsoever and those who are in charge of the new structure put themselves into leadership positions, when they have NO right to be there. Products are put out that are knowingly broken and saying they will get fixed and they never are. The most jacked-up budgeting process I've ever seen is in place. Budgets are not given or approved but then after the money is spent, leaders are like what?? The pay is not good and all areas of the company aren't treated the same. To the people who give it five stars, you just haven't been there long enough. And get rid of the English major who runs one part of the the company who is making business decisions!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the directors and managers in many areas. There is no sense of the "empowerment" you speak of. Nobody can make a decision to save their life and there is a lot of "cover yourself" mentality in most areas. Get a bunch of young, dynamic managers in there or that company is going down the drain. I'm giving the senior and mid-level management 1 star but that doesn't mean the CEO or the upper management. They all seem to know where the company is going and should be going but it's not filtering down to the middle. And if certain areas of the company insist on being the be all, end all of everything, tell them to do their jobs and stop bottlenecking every process.
