Good for short term tenure, but don't expect much.

Pros

Great everyday environment to work with a lot of interaction with colleagues.
Community services is second to none for the industry.
Benefits are decent, but could be better.
Office furniture for employees is top class.
Little overtime hours required.
Semi open book policy with employees.
Employee Owned with enrollment into plan after 2nd full year.

Cons

Poor management.
CEO favors sales staff too much.
Management plays favoritism.
Always increasing workload with no compensation increase.
Employees with favoritism often complain to management and always get their way.
Employees are valued with praise, but not in their checkbooks.
Employees that do not bend to the complaints and habits of sales staff are often terminated.
Employee suggestions for business are rarely considered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to Board: rebuild management team with members with more experience in the field and with more business knowledge to keep the company in the black.
Listen to your peers and respect the opinions of your employees. Your idea isn't always the best and isn't always the most well received. Listen to the teams more and let them make some decisions.
You DO NOT know it all.
Don't play favorites.
If the company hasn't been doing well for the past 3 years, then re-evaluate the sales team, not the support staff.
Give raises; something small is better than none.
Expand your market.
Bring back free break room amenities so the employees feel like they at least get something every day.
Only so much can be blamed on the economy; it is time to start rethinking from the top.

    A complete restructuring from the top down would serve to better this firm going forward. Take emotion out of decision making and base them off of facts and realty.
