Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Free parking, good working environment, nice co-workers that try to do the best job they can for the company.

Cons

Incompetent unqualified management, CEOs over the years received huge raises when employees got little to no raise. Nepotism, secretly cousin of manager got moved up 3 levels in one promotion to the job I earned company did not do their job on this issue. Inappropriate language used my manager to employee and company took no action on the issue.

Advice to Management

If nepotism can be proved demote or fire those involved no matter how long ago it happened. Promote qualified people to manager positions, Stop political promotions and promote the best qualified people that contribute the most to the organization.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pays a decent salary and you can get some real engineering experience while looking elsewhere for a real engineering job. Tons of equipment to use on the Maplewood campus.

    Cons

    No benefits included at the job. Would have been nice to have some health-care or retirement package to keep employees interested in the company. Many old timers are expected to retire early due to the economy.

    Advice to Management

    I know it is tough in this economy, but you should focus on growth. Look into new products that don't show lots of competition.
