Pros

it is a great culture where employees are encouraged to take responsibility and are empowered to innovate. The company is moving in the right direction with respect to vision and shareholder value.

Cons

Navigating all the team and processes involved in getting changes done

Advice to Management

Compensation should be improved. A lot of the salaries are below standard compensation in the industry. We need to stop churn with better compensation packages

    Pros

    Many high quality individuals throughout the company in different departments and at all levels.

    Cons

    The top three in charge of the IT dept stifled growth by instilling fear as a means to drive results. One in particular with a proud military background was probably the worst but was clearly convinced that such scare tactics were beneficial, all the while employees were leaving the company left and right. These top level "leaders" of the dept repeatedly made poor decisions, alienated business partners and employees alike, executed highly impacting mistakes, and spent more time and effort covering up such mistakes rather than take ownership and capture learning experiences. Great case study in how incompetence destroys an organization from the inside out.

    Advice to Management

    Identify your own shortcomings and take action to grow rather than deceive.
