    Terrible Place to Work/be a Slave! You will only get small clues during the interview process. It is a strange place!

    Pros

    Free starbucks coffee if you have a free moment on a Saturday to get a cup.

    Cons

    VP of Operations is a slash and burn intimidator who discriminates against age and gender. If you are a female or over 40 and are a engineer, cost accountant, production supervisor or manager - look out!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate the behavior of the VP of Operations. How many employees have you paid off or settled with their lawyer? What is your turnover rate compared to other divsions? How many bad "hires" do you make - are they female or over 40? I tried to tell HR what he was doing to me - made my situation worst.

    Pros

    Absolutely great company with huge potential. Despite some leadership, people can experience a variety of roles and responsibility. Top level management is very engaging.

    Cons

    Clueless in their succession planning, called TLR. Can't see a resignation coming and willing to pass along, even reward poor performers so they don't have to deal with the obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take off the rose colored glasses and leave your "friendships"behind or let it continue to choke you. Look deep and accept responsibility for continued failures in you are of discipline.
