The company has great potential, but middle management lacks qualification and leadership capability.

Pros

The company has relatively flexible working hours and usually understanding of the need to occasionally work remotely. Some of the newer products and some of the products currently in development are exciting and unquestionably have potential for great success.

Cons

Employee dissatisfaction is rampant, communication is poor, company seems to look the other way when employees try to address major issues with middle and upper management, salaries are lower than industry standard and promotions occur rarely if ever, extremely political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please take a good look at your 'middle' management. There's tremendous talent at this company, but you're never going to know that because of the few in the 'middle' who are only concerned about their own image and how they can 'look' competent even if at the disposal of their own (experienced) staff, which continues to result in employees either leaving or requesting transfer to other departments/business units. We are going through some major changes as a company - if nothing else, please use the opportunity to either train or replace those in the middle who continue to be unqualified and unprofessional because they are jeopardizing your credibility and ultimately the success of the company.

    B level middle management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten your organization a little bit, give a couple executives decision making power, and you will start seeing great results from the "do-ers"
