It is a good place and the leadership is trying to make it a great place. 5. While company has done very well financially reduced benefits are still in place. 6. Standard work week.

    Advice to Management

    Demand that middle management step up and show more leadership. Value your people. Restore some of the benefits that were lost. Make it fun. You just say "have fun”, but do not do anything to make it fun. The single thing that you could do with relatively no major cost impact is create a 4-10 work week. No one would be quitting Ascend and people would want to come and work for us. This would be a big morale booster.
