    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Skire

    Pros

    1) salary is competitive
    2) depending on supervisor, work hours can be flexible
    3) there is an effort to create a more enjoyable work environment
    4) co-workers mostly nice and helpful
    5) products are innovative

    Cons

    1) even though CEO is female, rest of senior management is good ol' boy (stodgy, grumpy,...)
    2) some managers create a negative, depressing atmosphere
    3) negativity and confrontation in meetings is becoming too common
    4) some departments are too tightly controlled, stifling creativity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company would benefit from some new blood in senior management. There also needs to be more open communication. Some senior management really has a way of sucking the enthusiasm right out of you.
