Pros

They really care about their employees and often sponsor events. The people are fun and laid back. Christmas Party and Summer picnic.

Cons

There is lack of organization and communication across departments. It can take a VERY long time to get help from anyone not in your bay. Also, it's a complete cubicle farm--only half cubicles, and there are no windows except by the front desk and kitchen. All of the walls are white with florescent lighting--it feels very commercial and uninviting.

Advice to Management

Stop micromanaging. Allow us to communicate with other departments to get things done faster.

    Pros

    This is a financially stable company. They make big decisions carefully and get them right. No layoffs in my time here. The casual atmosphere can obscure the high energy work ethic I see around me. They give ALL employees serious cash bonuses for milestone sales achievements like biggest month, biggest quarter, biggest year. Most quality employees who come here stay along time.

    Cons

    With stability can come staleness or lack of innovation, but they have enough good young heads in key positions to keep things moving forward. Career paths could be better defined.

    Advice to Management

    Initiate more job trainings and formal career advancement programs and having done so educate the employees on their best path to advancement. Think long term.

    Pros

    Small company atmosphere (going away), relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Cliquish, strong nepotism, have to fight for ever commission $ if they'll pay it, 401K with no match an animosity among the upper management that divides the company

    Advice to Management

    Hold a management meeting monthly so all department are on the same page and make sales #'s more readily available to managers to evaluate their growth and staff's performance. Open up the check book to pay commission so sales people are motivated not demoralized and feel they've been cheated.

    I too regret that as we grow our small company atmosphere becomes more and more difficult to maintain. Cliques are difficult to manage out of existence, but we try. As one of the few companies to ... More
