Too much reactionary cost cutting, need more strategic leadership.

Pros

Large organization. Good people overall as employees.

Cons

Management is too focused on EBITDA and not enough attention is paid to growing the company. Too many platforms to manage effectively. Sr. Management seems a little too shortsighted and overcontrolling.

Advice to Management

Hire good people and trust them to make decisions in their departments. Focus on growing the company's top-line and the EBITDA will follow. Lead by example.

    Pros

    Exposure to entire operations
    Good people (Not Senior Management)

    Cons

    Stagnation
    benefits are inadequate
    antiquated systems
    No thought out plans just shoot from the hip

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of our CEO who is just incompetent, CFO who is just a political individual and the rest who don't know how to manage people and have no strategic plan except for "lets lay off" to make our numbers.


  2. Great place to start my career. Should have left after current management took took over

    Pros

    The people. Good experience working with small business owners.

    Cons

    Watching management work is like watching a bucket of crabs. Instead of focusing on working together to get out of the bucket they focus of pulling each other down to make themselves look better.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the entrenched middle management that look to make the other managers look bad and blame frontline managers and supervisors for poor results and issues. Middle management is anyone not the president or a frontline manager.....
