    Has management lost its way?

    Fuel Tech (Former Employee)
    Auburn, NY

    ProsAll positions are first shift, 7 days of paid time off granted immediately for the first year, flexible with requests for time off.

    ConsLittle or no opportunity for growth and development. Highly ethically questionable decision making from management as well as R&D methods. Promotions based solely on senority, not qualifications. Work is very repititious and boring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management should probably be clean slated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They use very deceiving hiring practices to lure good people away from other jobs.

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsI worked there 4 years and can honestly say I do not have 1 positive comment other than some of the people I worked with were very good people and I am still friends with them today.

    ConsThey will tell you whatever they have to in order to get you to come to work for them, BEWARE lies will be told! The paid time off system they have is a complete joke. Middle management people are clueless, could not manage a hot dog stand. Guys at the top will lie to you with a smile on their faces and could care less about the people they employ, it is all about their money and how much they can make.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou might want to rethink your compensation package for the sales force because if you have to tell BOLDFACE lies to get people to take a job with your company then maybe there is something wrong with how they are paid.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointed, Mislead, Mistreated

    Tech (Current Employee)

    Pros1. Regular work week (no weekends, regular hours).
    2.

    Cons1. Office culture - run as a small time mom & pop shop and there seems to be unfair and inappropriate preferences with family members working together.
    2. Very poor retirement. Minimal amount matched and it takes a long time (up to 18 months) before they begin to match and then it is only 25% match up to 2% of pay.
    3. Not very flexible even when on salary. Have to make up for every minute you are out or late when there is an emergency or weather condition.
    4. HR department not very good with processing paperwork accurately. Many issues there.
    5. Company is not lean at all. They have no lean initiatives, they do not even know what it is.
    6. Try to pinch every single penny, even to the point where they can barely heat the offices in the winter.
    7. Extremely old-school methods and ways of thinking. Obsolete and outdated processes.
    8. Very stale and stagnant. I did not see any training programs or career development programs.

    Advice to Senior Management1. Enroll in some managerial training courses.
    2. Think outside the box. Stop thinking with tunnel vision.
    3. Act more professional with your interactions with direct reports.
    4. Stay current. Keep up with current industry standards.
    5. Use common sense.
    6. Broaden your horizon.
    7. Work on yourself and keep yourself up to date. You need to stay relevant in order to stay competitive. You need to keep up with the technology in the industry if you want your business to go to the next level.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
