  1. The CEO's kids have purchased the company. Have no idea what they're doing.

    I have been working at Jensen Precast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code. Work schedule was good.

    Cons

    Micromanaged by high levels (Chief Marketing Officer) Only the "yes" men move up in the company. "Good ole boy" system in place. "C" Levels do not appear to communicate with each other as to the direction they're committed to going. Four "kids" (they're adults, but the CEO's offspring) own the company now. The potential for real career growth is nonexistent now. CMO manages through "eyes and ears" in all the respective branches, and then promotes these individuals over time. You don't know who to trust, so trust no one.

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving in million directions at once, getting nowhere. Focus.

    I have been working at Jensen Precast full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are kinda affordable and realistic. Pay is moderate. Relatively safe place to work.

    Cons

    Micromanaging to the highest degree, very poor employee morale plant wide and constant turnover. Lower level workers are treated worse than minimum wage workers at a fast food company. Blue collar workers are seen as totally useless and expendable. Management spends all day devising plans on how to terminate staff and busy filling out unemployment claim appeals paperwork, instead of focusing on the bigger problems. Work load and expected productivity can be unrealistic for staff and as a result, all sorts of mistakes lie in the wake. Poor quality product in the long run. No ethnic diversity, mostly all white management and senior level "executives".

    Advice to Management

    You know the old saying, treat your employees like you would like to be treated, as valued team members that have much to contribute. Hire the appropriate amount of qualified staff members to perform the work, don't overwhelm your senior staff.


  3. Treating the symptoms, not the cause

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code Clean facility Free coffee good freeway access drug free environment non smoking facility no micro-management Good health benefits package

    Cons

    No management or leadership family company, little chance for outsiders to advance Management doesn't want to hear about potential problems Discourages growth, idea sharing or suggestions of any sort No succession plan for aging management Signs of potential hostile work environment ignored by HR

    Advice to Management

    Ignoring problems does not make them go away. Learn to deal with problems instead of burying the messengers if the company is to have any chance of survival. Do not make snap decisions without the benefit of fact as this leaves you wide open. A good company still headed by it's founder, the management team needs to do some serious sole searching if it is not to destroy this man's legacy.
