Great people, questionable management, no raises.

ProsGood location, fantastic people, and a chance to make a difference. I enjoyed working for the company for the most part.

ConsThere is a pall of fear and despair hanging over this company. Randy tries to micro manage everything from another state with limited information and questionable understanding of how things work at the nuts and bolts level. His upper and middle managers live in a constant state of fear knowing that they could be terminated on a whim at any time. Because of this they scramble madly to fix problems that have already been addressed and waste time money and productivity. Their refusal to offer raises has severed the connection between performance and compensation. It has cost them some good people and negatively impacted morale. Judging from the direction that the company is headed you may want to give Randy’s a pass.

Advice to Senior ManagementTell Randy the truth. He may be a genius, but he has no faith in his people. His efforts to micromanage every aspect of his business is costing him money and productivity. In addition you need to restore the connection between performance and compensation or you will be only left with employees with only the most lackluster performances.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
