    Pros

    On the plus side the 401k program is great and there are some good people that work there but leadership isn't. Small enough where you don't feel like a number

    Cons

    There is potential as a company as whole as there is market penetration available and new business has never been sought after. The problem is that the Senior Leadership is completely out of touch with daily operations. Processes and Procedures and not properly implemented and the organization as a whole needs to be reworked. However, they run completely thin on personally, if there is a bad couple of months they go through reductions in force. I have seen three in this year. To boost profits the company just lets go of people and adds more responsibility to its current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key and is lacking. You have also created a fear based culture and success is never recognized or celebrated. Listen to your people and leverage the skills set of the people who do good work, reward them.
