It's worse since emerging from bankruptcy

Pros

The people at the individual locations are trying hard to work within the confines of this new leadership since emergence of bankruptcy.

Cons

No flexibility to run business. Every decision has to go to the corporate office. Benefits are no longer competitive to a corporation this size.

Advice to Management

Give the leaders outside of the corporate office some flexibility to run the business. Employees lose confidence in their leaders and the leaders aren't leading, but being dictated to.

    Pros

    Good work/home balance with flexible schedule. Fair wages at hire and in beginning of career with company, although no raises in 3 years and none in sight and the cost of living keeps climbing.

    Cons

    No raises in 3 years. Constant change in organization without results, seems desparate and grasping. After emergence from bankruptcy, nothing has improved at all - still feels like we are in bankruptcy. We seem to waste more money trying to save money. (no color copies, seriously? this is your answer to cutting costs?) Low morale, sense of impending doom.

    Advice to Management

    Quit cutting the workers and look at cutting the overload of Managers/Leaders. Way too many chiefs and not enough indians. Someone has to be left to get the work done. Employees do not have confidence in the Leaders and are beginning to jump ship. Very sad to see what we have become.
