Flip side of job security is that poor employees are not regularly removed.Advice to ManagementAdvice
After 10+ years growing financially and operationally, it's time to grow organizationally. Loyalty is important, but keeping extremely poor employees around solely because of longevity makes poor logical sense. It also makes it difficult for new talent to justify remaining and adding value, which negatively impacts the long-term value of the company.
At 500 employees, less than a handful of people shouldn't be making all hiring/firing decisions, especially when not all of those people are trusted in the eyes of employees.
There should be a better way of measuring performance, both from a management perspective, and a productivity perspective. Currently, people are being promoted that the large majority of employees do not feel are worthy of said performance. Some people will obviously disagree with any given promotion/firing, but when almost everyone does, then something is wrong.
In short - Learn how to appropriately measure employees, fire poor performers, reward high performers, promote appropriately, and don't overweight longevity.Disapproves of CEO
