Solid Cactus - 11th Best Places To Work in PA - Trying to Survive in a Bad Economy

Management (Current Employee)
Shavertown, PA

ProsSolid Cactus is definitely the best place I've ever worked.

There are excellent opportunities for advancement and an open-door policy with management all the way up to the President.

Those coming to management with issues or problems with the company are charged with coming up with ideas to solve the problem encouraging employees to have even more extensive input into the operations process.

The company is also a fun environment where it is not uncommon to see impromptu nerf gun foam dart wars in programming or impromptu frisbee games in Marketing. Management understands that all work and no fun is unhealthy and causes high levels of stress.

The company has recently (within the last few weeks) undergone a total restructuring to improve efficiency.

During the recent economic downturn, regular messages are sent out from the owners about the financial position of the company, just so employees are kept informed. The Profit/Loss reports are available for any employee to view in order to solicit suggestions for increasing revenue and cutting unnecessary expenses.

ConsIf you're looking for an easy job where you come in 9 to 5 every day -- Solid Cactus is not for you.
If you can't survive in an atmosphere of rapid change, you're not going to last long here.
If you must question and challenge every decision that is made that you personally do not agree with, without researched justification of your objection - you'll need to change that. We don't tolerate complainers.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are expected to adapt to change rapidly. Management should offer a workshop on working in that type of environment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
