Pros

It's a small company, with basically no management at all, so there's a lot of room for autonomy and the self-directed.

Cons

There is basically no management at all. The CEO is obsessed with "Leadership" and conducts mandatory leadership seminars, but there is no one in a high-level management position here, and he does not manage- at random intervals he meddles, but that's it. There is no cohesive communication, inept people are never let go (critical in a tiny company!), and projects are assumed to manage themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please please please hire high-level managers and project managers. And when you *do* hire experts, please respect and avail yourself of their expertise rather than going with your "intuition" and opining that "maybe all the experts are wrong".

    Pros

    There is actually no pros..it is a purely staffing company, though claims to be in services business...and runs with a couple of customers

    Cons

    Very weak finance...company feeds employees on the collections. No cash reserve..if the customer delays in payment..everything gets delayed. There is no vision..CEO has been running this like family owned business and that's the reason has not grown in 23 years..takes his own decisions and rides on with few jokers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please come out of shop like management style and follow the professional approach..build your finances before you expand on your horizon....hire some good people and value them...if you want to grow..or be like it the way you have been for 23 years...stop telling lies to your customers...
