Decent company, starting to lose focus of what's important

Pros

The work is challenging, we have a strong group of leaders who really try to do what's best for the company, though often at the expense of the underlings.

Cons

There is a severe resistance to change - everyone prefers to protect their spot or their people rather than making changes to the common good. Leadership changes their mind way too often, there are way too many instances where they'll designate a project as priority, only to change tracks the next day

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to spend less time giving lip service to engagement, and more time actually spent on improving it for all colleagues - not just a small subset

    Pros

    The culture is amazing. Leadership is not secluded off in a different area. If you are great at networking, conversations by the coffee area can bring forth great opportunities. Everyone is really willing to help, and there is a great emphasis on leadership being close and connected to what the other employees face daily.

    The biggest Pro would be the ability to have a flexible schedule. There is a large virtual population, and having a schedule that allows for a few days virtual a week can really help with planning other life plans, vacations, etc.

    Great benefits when it comes to health and welfare, and 401k matches

    Cons

    It is a new industry, and there are many changes so there is a lot of gray area when it comes to your role. Patience and flexibility are a needed trait.

    A lack of adequate training for certain job functions.

    The workforce is filled with many individuals that have been in their role for 10+ years, and do not look like they are moving any time soon. Career growth can be stunted depending on that area of the business you reside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on targeted engagement. When you roll out engagement strategies, segment your workforce by generation and really appeal to what each cohort feels secure about. This may give better results than lumping everyone under one category.

    Overall positive, but extreme cost pressures exist that are driving very lean staffing and and uptick in attrition.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, open door policy with leadership.

    Cons

    Very low merit increases, if any. Low bonus payouts, especially the last few years. 50 hr/week is the expectation, and little time to devote to personal growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to appreciate the value of tenure on the floor, and the cost to replace that level of experience. Often penny wise and pound foolish when it comes to holding on to key talent.
