    I worked at Lyon Workspace Products full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with a rich history, People for the most part a good people from the heartland. Lots of products to fill storage solution needs,. Even though my position was recently eliminated coming out of bankruptcy I was given a great severance package to carry me through to my next position the owners care about people.

    Cons

    Plain and simple lack of knowledge and lack of leadership from theTop. mode and there is no sales plan for the future. The total philosophy now is to cut costs to be profitable and there is no direction on how to be sucesesful selling, there was some direction on selling from a couple regional managers but they were cut because they did not go along with the cost cutting phylosphy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The owners should take charge again and listen more to the regional managers the people put in charge will slowly bring you down to a 40 million dollar company. You need to make him listen to advice from experienced people.
    they do not have the experience needed The leadership style sucks big time. You have a company walking around in fear. Leadership by fear is not leadership ....
