    Pros

    People want it to be a success. They work hard to make an improvement and are helpful to those who work equally hard on solving the problems that come up.

    Cons

    There is evidence of a high turnover, poor management communications, faulty progress reporting, and an old boys school mentality. President is not open to hearing differing opinions and is too confident in his, often taking the wrong tact with customers. Loss of contracts have occurred that resulted in layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your new managers grow into the positions and eliminate the old boys school mentality. Be more open to growing a team rather then short term view of personal financial gain from corporation.

    Pros

    CG is a company where you get freedom to work to experiment. Get hand on experience. Lots to learn.

    Cons

    it functions like a govt firm. Managers are biased. New managers want their previous company employees to join. Others are not given enough opportunity to prove themselves. No check and control by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More check and control by top management. Team work at top level required. Egos to be given up if the company neerds to progress
