Pros

Senior management has conservative business approach regarding capital decisions, but has a forward looking decision making style (investing in renewable energy projects). This combination has provided for a healthy cash flow statement, while establishing a base for the future.

Cons

A corporate culture of no lay offs means all areas are a little (and during good times a lot) understaffed. Absorbing new acquisitions has made it difficult for some staff to maintain a work life balance.

Advice to Management

Examine (and put in place) a way(s) to grow the company while maintaining adequate staffing levels (to prevent burn out).

    Pros

    Some pockets of the organization have a learning, development and employee-oriented culture. There are many wonderful people who work at this organization. This company has the potential to be great. The share price does very well.

    Cons

    The tone from the top is that the bottom line takes precedence over employee growth. There is very weak communication and executive level presence in this organization on a day-to-day basis. It's unfortunate how many people are under utilized while senior management keeps hiring VPs from external sources.

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture of employee growth. You'd be surprised how well the employees take care of the bottom line then.
