    pay attention to the talent in the lower ranks

    Pros

    The company although big can be family/friendly oriented. Everyone gets the same percentage bonuses, same percentage raise, and vacation time begins at the first of the year and ends at the last month of the year for everyone.

    Cons

    Very antiquated in thinking. Slow to advance, if at all. Senior executive administration have been here for years. The CEO is family so no one will ever get any higher on the pay scale than being his senior executive administration. Corporate Headquarter employees make peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    Take the fresh, new outside opinions of incoming staff. Really listen and understand they are fresh eyes and just wanting to improve the company for the better. Reward employees for how well they do, not how well the company does fiscal year ending!!

    Pros

    Involved in Design of Equipment and Electric Connections. Mostly electric field for those interested in the Electric Field.

    Cons

    1) Very Unprofessional: They will not care when they acquired you, they will still let you go if they find someone better. 2) No one in the staff who are of non management positions has stayed more than 2 years with the company. (There is an extremely high turnover rate) 3) Poor Management Skills: They have extremely bad management skills, they will not give you advice, they will not train you and they will expect you to do the work even if you are not trained for it or have never done it before. 4) Very poor Interviewing skills: The Job description which I was interviewed for does not match at all what I was doing in the end. They assumed things during the interview and never ask about it during the process and then expect you to accomplish these things regardless and if you don't know how to do they will let you go. 5) They don't care how much effort you put in your wok, even if you stay more than 12 hours a day working Over all I would not advise to work here. The people are very unprofessional and have poor management skills. This company will get rid of you in a second if they find someone better to do the job. No loyalty to anyone

    Advice to Management

    You have a long way to go to improve your interviewing skills, management skills and respect for your employees

    Pros

    Laid-back office environment Good corporate citzenship projects throughout the year that involves fundraising, item collections, and off-site volunteering Some flexibility for working moms

    Cons

    Few internal positions ever open up and hiring from within is not a priority Poor planning and execution of special projects from upper level management Overworked employees with little time to get anything accomplished outside of essential job functions

    Pros

    Pay is good, time off is good.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be promoted unless you know someone... or have testicles.

    Advice to Management

    More equality as far as promotions go. People that work there for years shouldn't be put on the back burner for promotions just because you have a buddy that needs a job.

    Pros

    Time off if needed was always given.

    Cons

    Upper management very difficult and miro managers.

    Advice to Management

    VP's have got to stop miro managing and must be postive to employees and their direct reports. VP's go directly to managers reports and give direction as well as seems to think that it is acceptable to wear employees down to make them feel they have no worth.
