The last two years have been a challenge with Sr. Management scattered and political.

Pros

Great location - summer/winter resort. Some great people working in the company.

Cons

Brutal hours, Sr. Mgrs who don't care that they are burning out the "workers". To many "the king has no clothes", no one speaks up, all afraid for their jobs. Very little if any teamworkas everyone trys to protect their turf for fear of being downsized!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need a united front from Sr. Mgrs - perhaps it's time for the CEO to step down and bring in a pro.

    Pros

    Generous vacation policy. Nice location. Good employee cafeteria. Not much else.

    Cons

    The latest change to an already pathetic 401(k) plan has made it not only nearly worthless, but terribly unfair to employees. Basically they have devised a way to screw many employees out of the matching funds they have already earned. This is at a company that has no pension plan, so a meaningful 401(k) is very important. The worst part of this travesty is the message it delivers about how much it values its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You frequently talk about how much you value the contributions of your employees, but your actions show that it is just talk. Back up your words with some action. Don't take benefits away from workers while rewarding the management people who are responsible for the company's poor performance. Don't keep firing the people who are making the greatest contributions to the company's efforts, and expecting the same level of output from those who remain. Most of all, please understand that the relatively low turnover is due to people stuck in a town with no other employment prospects and a house they can't sell. Someday that will change, and you will lose your best people in droves.
