Pros

If you're looking for an environment where you can spend all day socializing, playing dirty politics, dealing with bureaucracy, and interacting with the most close-minded, unprofessional, and fake colleagues, then this is the place for you.

Cons

The work at all levels is not challenging, rote, out-dated, inefficient, and no one wants to change a thing. They claim to be "cutting edge" but it's all talk. The knowledge, experience, and expertise to bring the company into the Millenium does not exist; any attempts to "raise the bar" result in a company-wide collaborate effort to quickly, expel the poor soul. If you've ever read the book "21 Dirty Tricks at Work", everyone at this company is very proficient at the swift application of these tactics.

Advice to Management

Wake up! All those who you think are dedicated, loyal confidants working tirelessly for the best interest of the company are actually working tirelessly to continue maintaining the major cover-up of costly business mistakes, hiding their incompetencies, and keeping the company stagnant in order to continue racking up on unearned bonuses, coerced promotions, and fabricated accomplishments.

    Pros

    The company is committed to deliver a quality product at a good price to the consumer and stands behind their product. Treated employees and customers fairly.

    Cons

    Management changes could be quick and dramatic, with no forewarning. Corporate office middle management and staff in N.J. believed they had the answer to every problem, even ones they weren't familiar with. Too many experts with too little real experience. Often wondered if people got paid more for every slide in their PowerPoint presentations!

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management needs to leave local issues to local management. Make decisive decisions instead of just incremental changes.


  2. Went from good to bad when division management changed.

    Pros

    Good systems and procedures. Well run warranty department.

    Cons

    Ongoing downsizing. Cash poor company. Too much nepotism. The owner gets too involved in small details and is not a people person. Local manager does not respect the opinion of others. The mortgage company is and always has been poorly run.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees about the condition of the company. Get rid of relatives who are not deserving of their positions. Quit getting too involved in small details and concentrate on the big picture. Spend less time in the high society social scene and more time solving challenges.
