    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I get the feeling there are too many "yes men" surrounding our CEO. I think since I've been here (2008) there have been some pretty poor overall decisions and not enough sticking to what we've always been good at. Pay your employees what they're worth! Don't be afraid to hand out a spot bonus for a job well done! A little "atta-boy" goes a long way!
