    Pros

    Casual dress code and location.

    Cons

    Layoffs are the norm - whenever the owner is running out of money, due to poor business decisions, he cuts staff (5 times since 2008). Management is top heavy and they don't really care to listen to their employees. Owner claims he is a faith based and lives by the company values but cares more about himself and putting money in his own pocket. Leadership cares nothing about the quality of work, as long as the worker bees get the work done and they don't have to do anything. Keep your head down, the moment you speak up you're out of there.

    A very unstable and stressful work environment; a company with no direction for the future.

    Pros

    Many good people that are talented and hard-working; unfortunately many of these people left over the last year for better professional opportunities or were fired to cut costs.

    Cons

    Extremely poor and erratic management of the staff and the company. Particularly regarding sensible budgeting of income and expenses and overall annual/monthly fiscal management. The lack of competence in this area creates a scenario where every year there is a fire drill that includes layoffs, budget cuts and other demoralizing decisions that erode employee confidence and enthusiasm.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in people that know what they are doing. And truly be open to long-lasting change. Not knee jerk reactions to everything.
