    Current Employee - Unkown in Salem, VA
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    good benefits adequate pay great employees lower level employees are team players and great to work with

    Cons

    lack of communication, important information does not make it to the people that need it. Disorganized. Product seems to hide from reality. The systems are antiquated and inefficient. Money being spent on some of the current systems seems to be a waste; there comes a time when you need to start over and build something that works for the current business needs instead of trying to fix something that is never going to work for the curent and future needs of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Take accountability, stop pointing fingers and trying to determine who did what to get us here and let's just fix the problems.


  2. Helpful (1)

    State of constant change and reorganization gives opportunity until you reach the saturation point.

    Current Employee - Human Resources Organization in Worcester, MA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Overall employee population is good No commute into Boston State of constant change provides opportunities if you are motivated

    Cons

    The HR organization is led by people more interested in protecting their turf than moving the orgabnization forward. Eventually most strong performers get frustrated by leadership and leave.

    Advice to Management

    Have done a good job turning the company around, but now comes the difficult part - incremental growth. You need to choose a strategy and stick to it, including the leaders for the individual business units. Choose people that can be respected, not actuarial wonks.
