    Strong market position
    Very Broad product line
    great talented employees
    One of the best employers in our area of wisconcin
    employees are genuinely trying to make a difference

    Accountants who don't understand our business and have short sighted goals running a company that needs long term thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Quit chasing the latest shiny object (vrf) and focus on long term. Quit trying to operate on a shoestring.

    Pros

    Great product, leader in the industry. Not much else to be honest.

    Cons

    Training is awful; people are training you who haven't done the job themselves in years. Company doesn't value lower level employees, even middle-level management is not respected. The top of IR runs everything, albeit not very effectively - rate of retention should be given more attention. There is no guidance given for how you can work your way up - no clear guidelines for what you have to do to get a promotion, raises are ambiguous, performance reviews are arbitrary. Work-life balance is fine, but good luck ever moving up in this company. It's all about the cronies at the top and who they're connected with.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employee contribution from ALL LEVELS of the company. Better tactics for promoting from within besides who knows who.

    Totally top down and you better not question anything or you'll be pushed out.

    Pros

    Individual people very good to work with. Pay decent.

    Cons

    Management does not allow any questioning. La Crosse is poorly run and inflexible. Working atmosphere for salaried people is one of fear. Layoffs every few weeks so no one knows whether they will have a job the next day. Constant reorganization. Company no longer uses data to make decisions. It's all done by how they feel it should be. .

    Advice to Management

    Start using data again for decisions. No more management on the fly.

    Pros

    decent pay and benefits. Company is relatively stable and HQ is investing in this location. Most of the regular workforce are friendly enough.

    Cons

    There is a very bad company culture at this location. There is a general lack of appreciation and respect for employees. Constant finger pointing. management is clueless and reactive to latest crisis of the day, rather than long term priorities. Aging workforce that is just putting in their time and waiting to retire.

    Advice to Management

    top management and HR should be replaced.

    Pros

    They have a decent performance management system. It works well and is easily understood and processed. Pay scale and benefits within reasonable levels.

    Cons

    Highly inflexible. Very "processed-based," with little regard for historical perspective or doing things differently that the way they want it.
    No recognition for capabilities or past history/experience

    Advice to Management

    Learn to recognize the talent you have or you will find them in the past tense. Your way is not the only way to get things done.
