    Pros

    If you really want to be in Audio industry this might be an organization that would benefit your resume, however I would recommend looking at alternative companies.

    Cons

    Very negative work environment. The culture is negative, a standard conversation is confrontational, it's just the norm. Northridge, CA is the center of activity but executive management is in Stamford, CT. Stamford makes quick judgements, applying stereotypes very quickly. They have a limited profile that they respect--aggressive, traditional looking and acting manager. Long-time employees are threatened by new ideas and people and act out to undermine the new employees immediately upon arrival. Jokes which disparage people are openly told by executive management. 360 feedback/survey was conducted and they hid the results. Some information was released many months later, some of which they said they would not be doing. Simple things like "casual Friday" was rejected. It should be noted that customers rarely come to the offices. Office environment is all gray and no natural light, it is a converted factory. The acoustics are unbearable (interesting given that its an audio company).

    Advice to Management

    Diversity training for themselves and their employees (race and gender), this will hopefully lead to respecting, supporting, promoting their differences. Your company and your stock will benefit. If you remain focused on old school management styles and no diversity you will continue to struggle. And if the negativity continues to be the status quo you won't be able to attract or retain talent once the economy turns around.
