Horrible executive leadership

Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Oakdale, MN

Pros*food service on-site (Lake Elmo Inn)
*casual atmosphere
*located right off 694, just north of 94

Cons*good ole boys club
*inept employees are moved around between departments instead of terminated
*too many legacy 3M employees from spin-off are still there - they do not adapt to change well
*no tech support
*dysfunctional systems (either home grown or canned that has been so mutilated that it can't be updated with the original software)
*buy companies to grow, without understanding what the companies do or sell

Advice to Senior ManagementCan I advise upper-management to terminated themselves? Because that's what they all deserve. Lucas has driven this company into the ground.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
