    Pros

    Some of the most interesting and rewarding work I've done in my career. Many talented and dedicated employees at the lower levels. Ample opportunity for travel.

    Cons

    Upper management was absolutely useless at finding and bidding on new business. Couldn't make a profit because they had absolutely no idea what their operating expenses were. Company was extremely management top heavy. Numerous dead weight employees getting paid to do nothing. Employees who worked the hardest were rewarded the least. Upper management constantly lied to vendors, customers, and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Should have learned to listen to the employees who were around the longest. Should have hired a Chief Operating Officer who knew what she/he was doing.
