    Employee Ownership, Culture, Bonuses, Stock. Discretionary Bonuses, Phantom Stock.


    Huge gaps of management perspectives from top management to middle management. Different values between the two, Not on the same page. Bringing in middle managers from large public company's who don't understand the fundamental pride and culture of long time employee owners who made that company what it is today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the values of what built Scot Forge. Look at every "manager" and ask yourself are they doing just as much as their team? Are they a leader? Are they pioneering new ways to make a difference? If not, why employee them at a higher value than their direct reports.
