Pros

Able to speak to all levels of management if needed. Family environment with your coworkers, not everything is straight business all the time. The Finas will help you out if your in a tough bind. There's never a dull moment, there's always something going on to keep the job exciting.

Cons

Pay isn't competitive. A lot of managers who don't belong managing but have been able to keep their jobs because of personality. Very gossipy environment. Vacation/days off aren't competitive. No one ever does their job, always have something new thrown at you on a regular basis. Not praised/compensated justly when you do take on extra work.

Advice to Management

Praise, promote and/or compensate your best team players and people who have been loyal throughout the years. Don't always respond to just the problematic people, look into the crowd and see who are the ones who consistently deliver and don't make a fuss about things and foster those members of your team. Fire all the toxic team members and create a better overall morale.

    Pros

    Company has interesting products for a Corporate Recognition Company. The Magic Box, and Gift Brochures and presentation when an employee reaches a milestone are very original.

    Cons

    Communication disconnects between owners and managers. Managers are not given the freedom or support to implement changes or new policies without extensive round and round meetings. Solutions are not enforced or encouraged. There is a very high employee turnover at this company which may be due to a large amount of employee dissatisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Owners need to move into the 21st century and take a good hard look at how to run a company and retain employees. Micromanaging and ruling by fear and intimidation only breeds bad results.

    Pros

    Coworkers are very nice people. Company has many off site social events such as Holiday Party and Company Picnic, as well as onsite events such as Pizza Fridays.

    Cons

    I joined this company a few months ago and I am very sorry I did. It seemed like a nice company when I joined but very quickly I began to see I was wrong. Terrible morale, constant employee turnover, very expensive health insurance, no raises, Managment does not communicate to workers, no vacation for one year, employees are unhappy and they are losing business every day. It's only a matter of time before the layoffs begin. Rampant favoritism among owners friends. Managers who hire only their friends . The offices are dirty and the HR people are very cold and aloof. Managment says they have an open door policy but they are never in the office. There are a lot of people who are looking for a way out of this company as job descriptions are not defined, a lot of people are shuffled around from department to department and do not know what there job is. The place comes across initially as a corporate environment but once inside becomes anything but.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the phoney Town Hall meetings and be honest with your employees. Improve morale by creating better working conditions and effective communication. Create better policies that will encourage employees to want to work here.
