    Pros

    There may be growth and a future there if you can ride the tide of lack of communication and teamwork. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Lack of infrastructure and organization. Hard to know how departments interface. No org chart. No employee development. Sink or swim environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many entrenched folks that lack the basic skills needed to move the company ahead. Lots of CYA in the management ranks. Managers need to take ownership for mistakes. Culture seems to be form over substance.

    Never Work or do business with this company. If you do make sure you audit them. They add a lot of false extra pick ups

    Pros

    Before Jim Barns let his greed get to him, it was a fantastic company.

    Cons

    Dont ever work here. The management treats the employees like slaves, no raises, they make the bonus program almost impossible unless you are senior management. My department of close to 50 people, not one person recieved a bonus or did well enough on their score cards. If you can even get it its only an extra $100 every few months. They threaten to fire you constantly saying your replaceable, and say no raises becaues everyone should just be thankful to have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have no clue and are only interested in their quotas, and could care less about moral or the company unless they start losing money. Jim Barnes is a joke, he started an amazing company years ago. Oakleaf was the best job I ever had. Then Jim let his greed get to him and sold part of it off to investors. Since then, worst company you could ever work for.
