Senior Management is Clueless

(Former Employee) Wilmington, MA

ProsThe people in the facility (most) were exceptional to work with.
Benefits are in line with other companies, 401K and Medical.

ConsSenior management is completely clueless on how to run the business, nobody has any experience in the products it sells and services. They are two kronies from a previous senior manager who no longer works there.
Promises of good salary increases are spoken...but when it comes PMD time, the increases are usually a maximum of 2% (if you're lucky).
It's all about meeting and/or exceeding the numbers and they don't care how it's acheived. If you fall short good people who actually work, lose jobs, and the butt kissers seem to remain.
It's not what you know, it's who you know in there. Nothing like it was when it was a privately owned company when the owners listened and took care of their people.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people when they bring up concerns, stop pretending you care.
Stop making promises and not following through.
If you think someone is worth giving a raise to, then don't wait until they give their notice to dangle a hefty raise in front of them...reward them while they are still employed so you retain good experience.
Management in Wilmington (especially Service) runs the place poorly...it's successful because of the employees, not the management team who always take the credit, very unfortunate for the workers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
