Pros

Great People and Knowledge base within the non-management team. Young and eager group of people make it challenging and a fun environment. Management is good when it comes to dealing with specific personal issues, granting vacation and such. but that is about it.

Cons

Management seems lost on their best days. Too many projects with out any research on profitably or success. Promotions are based more on who you kiss up to than what you can do or your work performance. Certain dept have carte blanche while others tend to be left with all the blame. They love throwing out ideas, getting them 95% done, and then not finishing them. They take the credit for good work, never passing it on, though they will pass the blame immediately to their subordinates without a moments thought.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave. Since the departure of the prior CEO, the company has continuously underperformed, while spending a massive amounts on projects that have gone no where. Start evaluating projects before there started, and when they don't meet expectations do something about it, don't let it linger. And if a project fails due to human capital, do something about it, IE fire them, don't transfer them.

    It's a shame Sr. Management cares more about their beach houses than the people who help make them rich (their workers).

    Pros

    Gain is filled with great people, beautiful women, hard workers, fun and young professionals. Some of middle management cares about their employees. Advancement within the company is possible if you work hard and get the right boss.

    Cons

    Greedy, selfish and clueless Sr. Management team. Bonuses and raises have nothing to do with actual performance and everything to do with who you kiss ass to and who you report to. Salaries are completely inconsistent throughout the company. There are very few quality managers who have any idea how to properly manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the only reason you are an executive is so you can brag to your buddies at the country club, please just leave. There are plenty of unemployed people out there with the experience, knowledge and compassion to run the company in a proper way. Stop focussing all your efforts on making the balance sheet look good for an IPO or buyout that will never happen and start focusing on employee development, management training, and just plain doing the right things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very disrespectful to employees and should allow qualified employees to apply for new opening, not friends of managers
