Micro-Management of the trivial; Complete disregard of the important

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Georgetown, TX

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

ConsFamily-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 Senior ManagementBring 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
