Pros

Family-oriented atmosphere - they treat everyone great on the personal level.

Cons

Family-oriented atmosphere - too many actual family members and close friends work at the company. Poor performers are rarely let go, and too much perceived bias is present. Management team has been in place for over 25 years with no management experience outside of this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in fresh blood at the highest management levels. Remove the conflicts of interest with family members, girl-friends, etc being direct reports of each other. Jim needs to either step completely out of running the company, or be directly involved on a daily basis. His current state of "stepping back" yet still being involved in key decisions has created an atmosphere where nobody wants to make an important decision.

    Pros

    During my time at Embree, I got to know many wonderful people. They have managed to create a unique family-style environment of team members that makes working here better than most other companies. They take good care of the employees with breakfast taco Fridays and mid-week lunches provided for all employees. In the mornings, they provide fruit, cereal, and toast to everyone, and you can grab some fruit to snack on during your breaks. Everyone treated me well and caused me to enjoy waking up each morning to go into work.

    Cons

    I heard different directions from different higher-ups; it seemed as though they weren't on the same page. It would be nice if the leading staff communicated with one another about its goals and direction for company projects and ideas before sending employees in different directions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the positive and motivating work environment, but enhance correspondence with other management leaders.
