Pros

Ownership has made significant investments in our techology, people and processes and they continue to innovate. Leadership genuinely demonstrates care for it's employees while balancing the fiscal responsibilty associated with sustaining a successful business. The vast majority of our employees are highly engaged and regularly put the needs of our customers and company first. Opportunities for professional growth abound.

Cons

Employees are often asked to wear many hats although in today's economy I believe you'd be hard-pressed to find very many companies that don't need to ask their employees to do a little more in order to ensure the health and ongoing success of their businesses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to invest in new technology, infrastructure and your people. And, keep the free popcorn and donuts coming on Fridays :)

    Pros

    Dedicated employees and good customer base

    Cons

    To many individuals wearing more than one hat. Could benefit from staffing up departments a bit more. Management could do a better job supporting their employees.

  2.  

    Very dysfunctional organization with disconnected senior level management and dedicated loyal and caring employees.

    Pros

    Very conscientious workforce that is under appreciated by executive management. Good strategic plan for growth with innovative technology solutions in development.

    Cons

    Difficulty accomplishing organizational objectives due to departmental segregation and disconnected communication. Operational strategies are not well thought out. Band aids are too often the answer to deeply rooted operational shortcomings and cultural conflicts. The end result is reoccurring issues with no long term solutions....remember Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day?? Very reminiscent of Kastles problem solving capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in good talent with great people skills. Understand the answer is not work more hours...it's working smarter. Understand the importance of life/work balance. Hold onto good employees...they are worth every penny you pay them. Too many have walked away.
