Pros

They have a great idea - good solid concepts, and the market timing is correct for what they said they were trying to become.

Cons

Management changes every month - constant reorgainzations. But none of them acknowledge or fix the problem. The CEO has one vision, but operations is doing their own thing and undermining that vision. Verbally they all saw the same thing - but the actions tell a different story, and its like Mr. Huff refuses to see the problem is within his own house - and he's being stabbed in the back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit trying to build a concensus - have some guts and commit to a direction. If people are on board and contributing to the change (and in some cases actively working against it) then remove them - even when they are VP's and above!

    Pros

    Solvent company, convenient work location

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Out sourcing jobs to India and the Philippines. Less than a 2% merit raise. The only increase in 6 years. Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Bonus plans rolled out to Salary employees and Supervisors and nothing for the worker Bees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of communication, no feedback welcomed by the employees doing a specific job to see how a different way could be better from employees handling that job every day. Morale is at it's lowest level. Same old bull, no change as we were promised. We are reminded that we are lucky to be employed. What happened to Happy workers are Productive workers. You get what you give!!
