    Be more respectful of the people who make money for the company year after year. Don't continue to reward hangers-on who do not add value.

    Compensation and benefits are certainly competitive but professional development is clearly not a priority.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, good overall compensation package, can develop close relationships with colleagues, autonomy. Since the company is small, politics seem to be much less important and it's more about results.

    Cons

    No clear strategic direction communicated by Senior Management for parts of the business. No focus on career succession or professional development. Products are not "sexy"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make professional development, promotions and employee retention a priority for all parts of the company. Challenge managers to develop clear career and succession planning for their groups so people can advance internally.
