No opinion of CEO

Pros

The pay was on the high side for similar positions at other companies. I received a sizable hiring bonus when I accepted their offer. The Vision Plan is good.

Cons

No support or communication from management, unless they wanted to reprimand or counsel you. When they received complaints from the client or customer, they immediately assumed that the employee was in the wrong without hearing or even asking for your side of the situation.

Advice to Management

Loyalty, communication and trust are two-way streets. You have to communicate whats' going on with the company if you want your workers to be loyal and trust you. Stop keeping secrets about things that impact their future. When a customer complains don't take for granted they are telling the whole truth. Ask the employee in question for their side of the story before you accept what the client said and hand out reprimands and counseling. Listen to your people and take care of them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Not one to normally believe in idioms, the grass is definitely greener on this side. While you can always find something to complain about, Stanley is one of those companies where you just do not want to leave. Good medical, higher than average pay, team-oriented atmosphere, and flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Middle management gets the job done and this is what has made Stanley so successful. It's the executive management that needs some therapy. Lack of operational vision and growing too fast too short of time has made most of the executive team excess baggage. No clear career tracks leaves every man for themselve.

    Advice to Management

    Too much pride and not enough work ethic. Get over yourself and get your hands dirty from time to time. Need to focus more on operations and less on your legacy.
