Large company operated as if it is a small private company.

ProsIf one is a worker bee who is has a high degree of self-efficacy, this is a good fit.

ConsIneffective job aligning with GAAP at the subsystem level. Could run more efficiently and add value to its stakeholders if it instituted consistent policies, procedures and guidelines across functional areas.

For the past two years, there has been a higher than average turnover. There appears to be a disconnect between organizational strategy and the subsystem management. Change is being touted; however, the words and actions are not in sync. Lower level management is not empowered nor have the lattitude to manage effectively and innovation does not appear to be valued. This appears to be an organization that is unsure of its organizaitonal identity.

Susbystem management does not inspire trust in employees, as if management itself is unsure of the direction of the company or unsure of how to align the subsystem with the strategic direction of the company.

Employee morale is extremely low and at atmosphere of distrust and uncertainty exists. HR and management at the subsystem level inspires an "us" against "them" dynamic Subsystem management appears to be inept at developing and keeping good people. The subsystem appears to have difficulty quantifying production and attributing weights.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in process improvement expertise, invest in updating technology, bring transactional operations into the current decade (value innovation). Invest in management who have the technical aptitude and capabilities but also the soft skills that facilitate developing people.
