    Pros

    If I had to pick one, it would be that some of the employees are friendly

    Cons

    Owner has no concept of business development and will grind the company to the gound

    Advice to Management

    It is no longer Bob Cratchet age, trust employees to do the work. With trust will come performance.


  3. The company is considered to be a large one, however the HR and Management team make it feel like a small one

    Having the small company feeling it means that you are helped immediately and do not have to go through all of the red tape. It's very beneficial.

    Pros

    I no longer work there.

    Cons

    Upper Management has no experience, or knowledge in the fields they attempt to work in. They lack leadership, and communication skills. Multiple lawsuits filed for unfair business practices, and labor law violations.
    Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians.
    Too many hats to be worn by everyone. Management lies to employees to justify poor salary compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do what you hire them to do.

    Pros

    Working at the FAA; supporting users worldwide; mastering many different applications; being part of the aviation industry; the non-management people you work with.

    Cons

    Management is mess. The shouldn't be allowed to play in the sandbox with the other adults. Too focused on screwing people to get what they want and not focused on being a great company with great people.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Replace yourselves. Stop being children.

    Pros

    No micro-management or day to day review of work product

    No management vision. Management lacks leadership. Owner does not provide clear job description and function to senior management which adds to the confusion

    Open a suggestion box or confidential email so employees can write to you directly.
