Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your team. Actually care what the employees have to say and the feedback that they give you. There are a TON of super talented people who don't get the full support and the opportunities that they deserve. Recognize where it's due.

Don't micro-manage. Understand that this is not beneficial to your employees or you as an employer.

    Pros

    It is not a bad place for entry level people or ones who need to make a career change. However, if you are not moving up in the company, move on. Give yourself 3-5 years for a nice resume pit stop then get out.

    Cons

    Micromanaging C-level employees who can be clueless at times for steering the business in a positive direction. They are not aware of trends in the industry. It is embarrassing when customers alert us to issues, or when we have to shine a spotlight on incompetence in daily working or customer abuse just to get someone helped for specific situations. Some regions are very paranoid and will do whatever they want, whether or not it is good for the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the ADD management. Get rid of some of the C-level executives. Listen to your middle managers who actually have a clue on how to run your business.

    Pros

    People are great. Location is awesome, next door to fitness club and a grocery store. Free water and use of a microwave.

    Cons

    Computers are old and the system they run on always crashes. Will not even try to keep good, experienced people. Some managers do not know the business. Way to strict on breaks and lunch schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bringing outsiders into management that have never worked in this field. Promote from within, there are some very good people working here (and a lot more that have left).
