Opportunistic Owner

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsNice, caring staff. Holidays and evenings (usually) off. Pleasant office space with nice lake views.

ConsOwnership promotes a "wonderful culture" which turns out to be an excuse to over-control, underpay, overwork and not promote. And Note that if your role gets too valuable to the company, you may suddenly find yourself not "fitting in" the culture. But don't worry all the opportunities you brought to the company will remain with the company. Also saw this same opportunistic pattern with company's strategic partners including taking their clients away.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some coaching on how to communicate, relate, enroll and encourage employees, or stop confusing people by pretending you care. With no change you will have trouble keeping your good staff now the economy has improved.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
