I have been working at Michael C. Fina

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Family owned, loyal, with an open door policy. You refer everyone by their first name for all levels of management.

    Cons

    Forget raises in 2009 and 2010. Low moral. Departmental restructuring. Our pay raises is construction for new building across street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more straight forward to the employees who make this company a success. Reward us for our very stressful life.
