Pros

Competitive pay for technicians and salary for management. Decent benefits package. Opportunity for overtime for technicians and bonuses for management.
Pay raises for technicians based upon qualifications and training.
Very good in house training program for technicians.
Tool allowance for technicians.
Newly instituted personnel review system appears stronger then previous system, but failure on follow through and assistance will need to be judged.

Cons

Upper management is disconnected from middle management and day to day operations. While upper management has frequently commendable plans and views for the company, they are not communicated and carried out down the company into the rank and file.
Poor communications intra-company. Infrequent updates of company long term plans, and when it does happen, follow through and push down into the company from upper management does not happen.
IT support and equipment for technicians is rare.
Limited in house training for management.
Old management personnel review system was very weak and did not provide adequate feedback. No follow through on reviews.
Overwhelming focus on the bottom line causes some managers to cut corners, leaving their employees on the front line exposed.

Advice to Management

Better communication at all levels of the company would go a long way towards unifying the company. While good plans, views and intentions are good, they do not work unless they are pushed to permeate down the company into the rank and file.

    Pros

    Nice and generally understanding management and employees.
    The office I'm in has several "fun" activities for health and moral.

    Cons

    Programs that the admin use are not user friendly, I'm very tech savvy and I can't figure out the logic behind choosing the programs they "upgrade" to.
