Greatest place to work with some continuous improvement prospects.

Supervisor (Current Employee) Oceanside, CA

ProsCareer opportunities, benefits, ability to make a difference

ConsSmall company mentality, trying to operate as big company

Advice to Senior ManagementHold middle management accountable for results. Leadership competecies can not be taught. You can not teach people to behave. Some managers continue to be managers even though they are not 'people' oriented. This is the proverbial 'worm in the apple'. This continues to be a great company, but the few 'worms' infect our culture daily. They are the blockers, naysers, the ones that can not and will not adapt to change. Performance management should work these people out of the system-or at least in positions that do not toxify the rest of the employees that enjoy the impact they make in the daily work they perform.
