    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 Management

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

    Pros

    strong, interesting folks and great locations.

    Cons

    corporate management is anti-technology, makes it really tough to be very innovative as a technology vendor. The CEO has no experience, in fact, in technology, has not been able to make any leadership decisions other than austerity programs for product lines that are not producing revenues.

    Advice to Management

    Get some tech-savvy executives ASAP.
