    Pros

    People are fun work is somewhat repetitive pays well if youre good. Easier if you know how to sell and have great conversations with ease. Schedule is mostly flexible. This company has an eye for the future.

    Cons

    You make it what u want if you want to slack you'll be micromanaged. If you are looking to advance your career look elsewhere this is a job you can get very comfortable in and watch your chances at making better money pass you by.

    Advice to Management

    Retain experts and stop chaotic pointless projects just because it is a slow period. Need to focus on operational deficiencies and have everyone come together to develop ideas and improve processes that make sense.

    Pros

    Staff are awesome and appreciation day make up for some of the stuff that goes on

    Cons

    Don't belive in its people .Departments work separate. NOT MUCH TO SAY IF THATS WHAT YOU CALL TEAM ORGANIZATION TO SAVE FACE

    Advice to Management

    Have some faith in staff and respect the fact that some have been there for a long time must mean something.Pay scale is not up to participate.

    Pros

    Great people, a satisfying job, decent pay, and you spend your time helping people. Overall it's a really great place to work with little experience required.

    Cons

    The job can sometimes be excessively exhausting, working very long hours some days, and can be physically exhausting as well.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff and don't require people to work as many hours, and you'd probably have less staff turnover and training costs in the long run.

    Pros

    The company has a great brand and an interesting business model. The people are generally collegial and want to do their best for the company.

    Cons

    Exceedingly weak senior management team who are generally under-qualified for the roles they play and functions they lead. This company is not remotely a meritocracy for talented senior people. For more junior positions, it is extremely difficult to dislodge less-capable superiors.

    Advice to Management

    Strongly suggest that they replenish the senior ranks with more qualified and innovative leaders. Executive should stop protecting friends/associates and get on with the business of hiring resources that more junior resources can look up to and follow.

    Pros

    Great people, great company history, provides a great service to the community. Promotes internally, great potential growth. This company has been a very profitable company. Curiously a non-profit organization.

    Cons

    Horrible management in the last 6 years or so, high turnover rates, lots of layoffs and benefits packages for employees are getting worse. Pay increases are exponential for senior management and above, while employee benefits decrease and salary rates of increase are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Leave!

    slow things down and review the full business requirements before reacting.
