Pros

Good benefits, and lots of vacation days.

Cons

The company is top heavy with senior management based on the size of the company. Many employees had been there for quite some time and had a sense of entitlement. They had a hard time adjusting to layoffs, budget cuts, friends leaving the company, etc. Each and every time they would say, "That's not the way we do it at InFocus". Never realizing that the company had been losing money for years ~ the old ways of thinking were not working anymore...No one was ever interested in hearing any new ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Determine actionable business plans each season and stick to them. Make the sales team accountable for profitability within their accounts.

    Pros

    location was great. Wilsonville was a lovely place. junior associates were great as well. history was bad and success had come easily. no ability to see the future and plan for it

    Cons

    bad business. economically impossible to make money with cost structure, and inability to change cost structure. poor leadership by kyle, who was in it for himself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    best thing to do was to go private. but long term, still cannot see it making money. brand continues to erode
