    Pros

    Mid-level management team are good, hard working people with a strong understanding of the business and how senior-level management decisions will impact the business and customers. Product offerings are improving.

    Cons

    C-level and some senior level managers often make quick, reactive decisions without 1) getting (or listening to) input of mid-level management and 2) fully understanding how those rash decisions will impact the supply chain and ultimately the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Plan for the business and stick to the plan. Understand fully how a decision will impact the business, employees, and customers before the decision is made.

    Pros

    Many great employees who know how to make great product.

    Cons

    Other reviews are very appropriate. Company is failing, with much talk of buyers. Company fate lays with buyers. Hopefully they will have the good sense to clean up the new management. But as one plant manager used to say, "hope is not a strategy." So, many employees are jumping ship. Just sad. Best not to waste any energy is taking a job here.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real leadership in place.
