    Pros

    The product, boats, is great. Very exciting and FUN. Many very personable, motivated and competent people.

    Cons

    As a company to work for, there is lots of variation depending on 1) what division you are in and 2) the competence and basic decency of the senior management (typically just a handful of people) in the division.

    When senior management in a division is competent, want to foster a positive work environment, and have employees work efficiently, it is a great place to work. There are numerous areas of the firm like this.

    If some of senior management are challenged on the competency scale, have a poor attitude about creating a positive work environment and have questionable intentions on having employees to work efficiently, the firm can be a less attractive place to work. This is not to say that all the senior management is this way in some areas; it is only to say that a small number of these types in senior positions can impact the environment for many (and set a poor example for others to follow). These areas of the firm have a higher level of discontent, business 'snafu's' and employee turn nover. Unfortunately, the very best (the most competent and most team oriented) employees often have a high likelihood of leaving -- and the facts prove that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carefully evaluate what you hear about the work environment. Get input from every one. Above all, DO NOT BE overly influenced by those who appear to be willing to help the most. THESE are the people you want to look at the closest.

    LISTEN and REACT to the employee surveys!!! Money was spent on this -- it is the only forum you have to actually cut through all the chatter you hear from the above people creating the issues. The people creating the issues will tell you any thing to keep the status quo (and themselves employed in key areas).
