Frenetic work / Friendly coworkers / Very dated management style

I T (Current Employee)

ProsCompetitive pay above local market at corp office
Friendly, well meaning coworkers
Training opportunities, if you can find the time

ConsCompetitive compensation keeps the golden handcuffs on stressed out workers. Rule by fear and fiat does not inspire. Little sense of direction or strategy communicated to the rank and file. Very hierarchical, top-down management style is so 1980's. Top heavy worker to manager ratio for a company of this size. Workforce stretched so thin it defies gravity. Plumb projects given to outside resources.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust, respect and inspire your workers and the company will be rewarded in turn with hard working, dedicated employees.
