Company not doing well...tough environment for remaining employees

I have been working at Planar Systems

Pros

Benefits, PTO, flexible work schedules, positive co-workers/environment, plenty of opportunities to contribute to projects across the company

Cons

Financial struggles, lay offs, reactive business practices, not enough up front research on products, markets/verticals, disorganized sales & marketing, impulsive decisions and poor communications by management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less reactive, more proactive/smart practices, better organization, communication and research. More productive employee feedback and opportunities/training for employees looking to develop careers within the company.

    I worked at Planar Systems

    Pros

    The amount and availability of PTO is the one good benefit left, as all the others have been reduced or taken away completely.

    Cons

    No clear leadership direction at any managerial level, lower benefits, low wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more in-depth industry research to determine what future customer needs are; set clear goals that are measurable and attainable, and hold key players accountable to performance related to those goals.

    I have been working at Planar Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management has really turned this company around. The stock had tripled since I started working here. Boss is great, expectations are reasonable and benefits and salary are fair. Work life balance is great too. Solid products and technology.

    Cons

    It will take diligence and foresight to constantly continue to stay ahead of the curve. Might be trying to grow too fast, could backfire and lose good people in the process. Excessive policy making is taking away from the family run feel I used to enjoy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow and steady growth is safer than setting unrealistic sales targets which could reflect poorly even on the most successful employees.
