some great people, minimal politics (considering the size), friendly work atmosphere, decent work/life balance, good benefits, at least tries to be fair.
Pay seems opaque and arbitary. As a manager, hard to reward top performers without punishing the 'merely' decent. Metrics are important but so is the story behind them. Sometimes feels like 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Increased willingness to cut corners to get product out the door.
Advice to Management
with growth coming back, compensation adjustments should follow suit. whilst the market helps, its the current employees that are helping capitalise. Be open about pay structures across different departments. The secrecy only leads to rumours and wrong perceptions. More professional training; in-house can do the basics and product training, but bring in specialists for more focused training.
