    Lots of talk about how great they are, but not a lot of substance...

    I have been working at Rio Grande full-time

    Pros

    -If you are a low-level employee, you will be given more freedom and input than you would in most places.
    -Lots of good, well meaning people work here.
    -Access given to employees about the financial state of the company in explicit detail.
    -Solar powered.
    -Employee discounts.

    Cons

    -The "Culture" which they are so proud of is essentially license for political games and an opportunity for the least informed person in the room to have a platform to derail meetings.
    -Lots of meetings with few results.
    -Coaches. Some are well meaning, some are not. Some are educated, some are not. Some know the business, some do not. Most of the politics happen at this level. For about half of them, it is very unclear that they do anything at all except attend meetings (irregularly and late) and receive CC'd emails.
    -Security checkpoints. Imagine going to the airport every day. Enough said.
    -VERY weak 401k match.
    -Most of the smartest people in the company are in the lowest positions, while many in a position of power are not nearly as smart as the people they "manage". Popularity or newness of the employee is often the deciding factor of who's ideas get done (when they get done at all).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -The Berkshire purchase made mediocre benefits worse, that's something that needs to be fixed if you want to hire and retain good people.
    -Coaches are marginally involved with their teams, and are often a hindrance to progress. Most of the problems with the company start and stop there. There are definitely some smart, motivated coaches who care, but they're the exception, not the rule.
    -Training sessions do little more than waste time. Stop focusing on feelings and start thinking about the work that needs to be done and how best to do it.
    -The culture is not nearly as exceptional as you think it is. It causes as many problems as it solves.
