    I have been working at NELSON full-time (more than 10 years)


    Not a single pro that I can think of. It really is that bad. Its simply a horrific mess.


    Utterly incompetent senior and mid-level management. CEO & COO have ruined a nice business started and built by the CEO's father.

    COO comes from a wall street type background and after nearly five years still has no clue or understanding of the A/E/C/I business. Possibly the worst communicator I have ever encountered. Thinks business is solely based on metrics. Doesn't comprehend that targets and metrics established by management are virtually unachievable, and what's worse, doesn't care. As long as she meets her performance targets she is set. The thing is, the unachievable targets and metrics she sets for others actually HELP in meeting her targets because the company doesn't have to pay bonuses because of unachieved metrics. The deeper the company's black, the bigger her bonus. See a problem there?

    The CEO is an empty suit and doesn't seem to care because he's in the black (regardless of the shrinking business). They do not understand that healthy growth is the long term key to a successful business. You can shrink the company to get back to profitability, but that short term outlook will kill any company long term. And guess what, they have no plan for organic growth. The company plan is for acquisition of beleaguered firms to gain additional top line revenue while never doing anything to support the newly acquired work.

    It will crater, it's just a matter of when. Certain failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice is pointless. Sr. management are to egotistical and ultimately, thick to follow good advice. History bears this out.
