    Pros

    As the company has struggled over the past few years a major transformation started just a couple months ago. There is a much greater focus on new product development, new ways of doing things that is really bringing much of what was out-date in terms of management and process more up to date. There are still challenges, but management has taken on a listening approach that is enabling things to get done faster and more in line with what is good for the employee population. It is an exciting time to be here because there is so much to do..

    Cons

    Many changes as well as the management style for the past few years have taken their toll on morale. It is an uphill battle to get people pumped about how things are getting better and will keep getting better. Before there was a focus on profits at any cost and that really got people down. Today there is a new attitude from the top down that is much more focused on how a engaged employee population translates into greater productivity and a better, happier company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going with the new focus areas. Continue to work on better acquisition integration. Never stop listening to the rank and file employees who are the bread and butter of the organization as well as your chief evangelists. Embrace the corporate cultures of other great companies and get some of those fringe benefits in the hands of the people who work the hardest.

    Lots of internal changes, some instability, slow moving company.

    Pros

    Good people to work with, hours are pretty flexible, some people work remote which is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Lots of recent management changes which causes uncertainty, not much cross-functional training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs more cash based incentives. More perks at the office would be nice.
