Pros

fast growth, new facilities, good people, exciting projects, hard working staff, competetive compensation

Cons

Communication = non exisitent. Decisions are made fast without input outside elite circle of "in the know" decision makers, several of whom have never worked outside the company. Competent staff spends too much time carrying out commands, cleaning up poorly planned decisions, establishing procedures after the fact. Management needs to shed the god-like complex and consider offering clear direction, feedback and decentralizing authority. Knowledgeable staff is able and willing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your employees. Build a partnership. Empower them. Give them tools and information they need to job they were hired for. Learn to communicate effectively and to follow up. Most of your employees are just hardworking professionals who want to contribute--don't take them for granted. Communicate, communicate, communicate.

    Pros

    Passionate Billionaire shines brightly, nice new digs.

    Cons

    No infrastructure below owner to catch mere mortals.
    Too many companies trying to come together feeding off the center for funding and attention with little if any revenue goals or plans of how to create synergies amongst themselves.
    A general state of confusion and insecurity prevails amongst management and staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like management, enact basic business practice as an organization, communicate a thoughtful plan, support and enable leaders to achieve a shared direction.

    Pros

    Location and opportunities in certain groups

    Cons

    Minimal to nil communication between management and employees. Negative employee feedback is looked as not being a team player. Negative feed back to employee from supervisor is done in the ofrm of termination. There is never any warning. Decisions made and carried out by decree. They love you as you arrive and your are chewed up and spot out when they are done.
    This is usually done on the last day of the month so you have zero benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TALK to your employees.
