Pros

It was great having a company car, but working 12 hour days, so then by the weekend, I was too tired to use it to go anywhere. Not a bad strategy

Cons

Honesty and integrity are not valued as much as bottom line and making it look good.

Advice to Management

Teach your managers to manage. Use the carrot, not the whip. Use your heads, you can't punish people to get better. Progressive discipline should be combined with retraining and motivation.

    Pros

    The opportunitty for advacement is based solely on results and teamwork. Also, the skills you learn are transferable: IE. how to run your own business with P&L responsibilities. You have complete oversight of your own business within 18 months of joining the company.

    Cons

    Customers can sometimes be a challenge, but with training and experience you quickly learn how to difuse situations and delight.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your plan - it's working. Hard work rewarded with handsome compensation and above average paid time off. One of the few compnies that I know of where you get 3 weeks of vacation after your first year and both an employer 401K match in addition to a 100% company paid retirement plan.

    Pros

    Looks good on my resume! A few nice co-workers Somewhat nice facility

    Cons

    Rude and demeaning managers who barely have a grasp on the English language. Employees get blamed when "management" drops the ball. Absolutely no communication within the departments except when it comes to pointless daily meetings that take away from employee productivity. The pay is extremely low with very little work life balance. The food is less than stellar with no microwaves on site and the nearest fast food joints are almost twenty minutes away making it hard to save money on food. The HR department is one of the WORST I've seen! They turned a blind eye to employee complaints that would have cause them problems with the EEOC. The IT department consists of three people and they take a month to resolve your issues. The dress code walks a fine line of looking like an episode of Jersey Shore.

    Advice to Management

    Stop terminating employees because of the incompetence of your managers. Learn to treat your employees fairly and get rid of the dead weight in some of your departments, i.e. directors. Communicate more and cease the pointless daily meetings that take away from employees' work day and productivity. Once you stop with the finger pointing, you may have a chance of having a decent organization.
