Pros

Honestly believe president of the company cares for employees. Doesn't really know what the problems of each department are and how they impact each other because of trying to avoid conflict. Allows for independant work without micromanaging.

Cons

Time impact due to errors not addressed by management. Unrealistic promises to customers on delivery without verifying what can and can't be accomplished. COMMUNICATION BETWEEN DEPARTMENTS WOULD HELP! Always trying to "fix" instead of prevent the problems. No venue for imput by employees. No management meetings, only production meetings. VERY frustrating to fix the same problems over and over and over again. Why ask for imput if you aren't going to listen? Creates false hope for improvement and employee input value.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, have management meetings - not just production meetings. Yes, a few toes will be stepped on in the beginning, but how do you expect to foster any sense of unity without getting everyone involved? Don't just say it... do it! And then make it happen. Employee satisfaction at the prospect of being valued would raise tremendously. Besides, who knows better then the person doing the job what it actually takes to do it right? And if they understand how they impact each other's jobs working together can solve many of the problems BEFORE they occur.

    Somewhat enjoyable at times, but frustrating and angering the rest of the time.

    Pros

    It can be a fun place to work. There is a lot of joking and good times to be had between certain employees.

    Cons

    Many employees and management were rude and condescending. It wasn't uncommon to be not only yelled at, but also cussed at on a regular basis. Managers regularly tried to get each other, and those on other managers teams, in trouble for things that they have no control over. There was A LOT of back stabbing. You had to make sure that you were CYA at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't talk to employees, even those under the direction of a different manager, like they are idiots. While people can do dumb things sometimes, treating them like a piece of trash is no way to improve things on your end or theirs. Senior level management needs to provide anonymity when a complaint comes in.
