    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and get rid of your old Oaks. Also grow up and stop pretending that your'e really a fancy bathroom when you're really just an outhouse.

    Pros

    Smaller work environment makes it possible for your voice to be heard louder.
    HR department listens to the employees and seems to care.
    Pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of resources, technology and people to accomplish all that they want to do.
    People do well based on how well they are liked - politics weighs heavily here and some people are in their positions due to who they are related to.
    There are many "lifers" at this company that don't like change and also don't like the new people that have come in.
    Lack of cooperation, accountability and responsibility from colleagues.
    Lots of blaming/pointing fingers.
    It's impossible to accomplish anything because nobody wants to make a decision, and this includes Senior Managers and Directors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for hiring more people from the outside. The company needs more new blood, though, especially Senior-level Managers and Directors who aren't afraid to make decisions, take risks and be responsible.
