Approves of CEO

Pros

Good vacation and decent salary, work can be interesting and the atmosphere is mostly pretty relaxed

Cons

Poor leadership, lack of direction and focus on trivia rather than technical issues. Purchasing is cumbersom. Poor adaptation of technology to improve work efficiency - Lots of paper documentation.

Advice to Management

Spend a few million getting your house in order, proper PM development and efficency improvement programs i.e. searcheble electronic databases for equipment.

    Pros

    Health and pension plan benefits are competitive
    Salaries are decent if you are hired as a new employee but if you have been with the company for a long time, chances are you make less than average.

    Cons

    Low employee morale in every department which can be seen by high employee turnover across the company (including that in upper management).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, communicate, communicate.
