Hard to keep anyone with a good skill set

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Certona full-time

ProsLanding a position here was easy. Now that we are renting space under Kyocera we have more than one bathroom and it gets cleaned daily. Thanks Kyocera for the janitorial services.

Benefits are very good and inline with bigger companies.

A good opportunity for anyone getting back into the work force.

ConsWe can not keep employees with good skills. They work here for a few months to a year and seem to move on.

Many of the current employees are burnt out and very unhappy. I am one of them. We are unhappy because management is so disconnected. Direction within is very poor. We are often short with our coworkers and don't like to help or share knowledge. This may be a big factor in the high turn over.

The CEO and a few of the management don't even respect the newly hired Vice President of Engineering. But I am learning why unless its just rubbing off from management.

We do work many hours and don't get holidays off. But we are tied to the E commerce business so this is expected. Forget family life if you have one.

This is a family owned and run business. They hire their own family members in good positions when they are not qualified.

Management is disconnected.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe professional! We are looking at you all the time, and if we have poor leadership, how can you expect us to be any better?

If you choose the right people and enable them to spread their wings with a good compensation carrot at the back end of it, you'll have better employees to help take Certona to the next step.

Someone left the review "Advice to Senior Management – Sometimes managers can't be friends with employees, when there is a serious problem you must take care of it" I can honestly see why this person feels this way.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
