The company has focused too much on the buy and build strategy and not enough on nurturing the talent on hand.

Pros

Sick and vacation time are all under on umbrella, thus for those not sick often they do not "lose" time that wouldn't be used. The ability to carry over greater than 40 hours of vacation time is also a plus. The office atmosphere is very relaxed and they dress code casual. Camaraderie among veteran employees is good.

Cons

If you are a new hire there is not a good system to integrate you into your team. Rarely do you meet the team members (if regional) and if they are local it takes a long time for them to warm up to you. The company does not contribute to a retirement plan and the benefits are limited. Health care is provided but it continues to rise each year, substantially. Upper management does not communicate to their employees on a regular basis. No career pathing is available and many talented people are leaving to further their careers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to create clear career paths for employees, create some measurable goals that can be obtained and provide an incentive based annual review.

    Pros

    Casual. Mostly friendly. Commutability is good. Convenient to so many services and products.

    Cons

    Mediocre upper management. Oblivious to efforts and input of day-to-day employees. Pay is pitiful - way below average for region. Information shared with specific team members and not others. Odd way to perform business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Get to know who does what. Bring salary levels up to middle range for region and for field. Learn how to recognize cliques and stop them from breaking up teams and morale.

    Pros

    Good work environement and good people to work with. Salaries and benefits compariable with the industry. Management at the Director and VP Level committed to the quality of the work and the employees.

    Cons

    Executive Management keeps decisions very close to the vest. New ownership reducing staff in waves creates an environment of uncertainty and distrust. Little communication about the direction of the company to the rank and file.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people know what's going on and the challenges facing the company and industry. Make up your mind and make the cuts and be done with it.
