Loved the job, unfortunately was laid off with the balance of the Sales Division

Pros

Great pride of ownership from the employees. Teamwork abounds but unfortunately within either the sales or operations department, not both.

Cons

The company is managed quarter to quarter, and decisions are made without regard to personnel. The operations teams have ultimate control of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The sales division should have been allowed to continue building on the successful metrics that were shown in the last six months of FY11, and the first two weeks of FY12. If the dividend needs to be cut, cut it.

    Good people but you live and die by the weather and short-sighted management decisions.

    Inept leadership by CEO Steve Wambold ... out of ideas other than cutting employees.

    Pros

    The employees and middle management are great to work with and with new CEO leadership who will have some innovative ideas, this company could be a better success. Employees here will always help each other, unfortunately this does not continue to the top. The company has invested in infrastructure in the past which has modernized the company to a degree.

    Cons

    The lack of authentic leadership is destroying any type of motivation and camaraderie that existed. The laying off of employees to show positive results to stockholders has destroyed a trusted work environment. The attitudes toward diversity when it comes to minorities is not progressing. The lack of transparency has employees not trusting their leadership. Promoting from a 'good old boy' concept is not making us a smarter company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New CEO; More innovation; Create Diversity; Create positive partnerships.
