    Pros

    The customers were great other than that nothing

    Cons

    Upper management is a joke, lying cheats who care only about the selfs. Cut back Cut back is all they say but upper management go on non needed business trips to strip joints up in Wash. and have the company pay for it and laugh about it. This is only one example many more wont even mention the Panama so called business trips.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all upper management

    no communication, shady management and supervisors, move you to keep you away from there even more then the work schedule intels.

    relocate new hires to the area that they will be working, not 5 hours away. better screen your supervisors, make sure to fire the right person and not the one that did the work.

    Pros

    Company had the potential grow into the largest petroleum distribution in the company

    Cons

    Too many acquisitions too quickly, not repairing the issues with the acquired companies after the acquisition, too many moving parts and lack of organization led to the demise

    Focus on creating functional business units and repair the disfunctional ones prior to moving onto more acquisitions.
