Pros

My boss is supportive. Mostly good people to work with.

Cons

Lots of political maneuvering. Uncertain future. Old school micro-management style by some supervisors. The bullies and negativity overwhelms the positive aspects. Out of control behaviors.

Advice to Management

Get progressive and proactive.

    Pros

    Allow employees to make transfers to other divisions and other areas of the country etc...

    Cons

    Very lacking in research and development-tend to copy products from other companies (me too products)
    Management is not in touch with employees and tend to micromanage.

    Advice to Management

    Know the strengths of your employees and value them. Find ways to inspire and motivate rather than micromanage. Create a more innovative atmosphere by investing in research and development.


  2. Senior management doesn't seem to have a plan, but keeps regurgitating the same things every couple years.
