    Pros

    New CEO is bringing the changes needed for the company to turn around. Newly issued options this year was a great addition, and helps boost morale, since previously issued options had unattainable strike prices. It's a great way of the exec team saying,"Sorry guys, let's try this one more time."

    Health insurance is great, with the option to buy up for an even better plan. Location is great as well, right down on the waterfront.

    Times are exciting here right now, with some big improvements coming!

    Cons

    Morale, while getting better, is still kind of low among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going, and keep us on this track. Even us operations folk can start to see the improvements.

    Interview

    Went through two interviews, only because one person was busy at the time of the first interview. The person responsible for hiring said they'd want someone who fit my credentials (nontraditional in comparison to others in the same role) and "see what happens."

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a chaotic situation at work you found yourself in, how you resolved it, and what you learned (rookie interview question.)   Answer Question
