A terrible company to work for with no direction or competence at the top.

    Pros

    Good people at Solo Cup

    Cons

    Nothing positive to say about Solo. CEO has no idea how to run a company, lacks insight and culpability. Blames all other company functions for the companies woes to appease the dreaded vestar. Changes company strategy every six months, failing every time. He has no respect for his management team and tries to be the CFO, COO, HR, and Legal expert. Word of advise to those considering Solo Cup. Every time revenue falls, there will be corporate cuts...it's the vestar way. For some insane reason, poor revenue and earnings performance somehow is caused by the folks who have nothing to do with revenue generation or operational performance. It's the folks that do the day the day work to support his strategy that are the ones cut. I do understand cuts are part of the business, but when the CEO makes them without consulting his management team and without regard to employees performance or abilities, it just shows his inept abilities. I lost all respect for the south side boy who refuses to stand up to private equity boys. He clearly wants to make his 700k salary for as long as he can at the expense of the hard working performing employees.

    Advice to management? Are you kidding me? Consistent downward spiral since 2006, management must go.
