    Leadership struggling with the direction it wants to take organization. People feel constrained and skills under utilized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should listen to their managers about the direction of the company. They should realize they have a talented workforce that should be trusted.

    I have been working at National Industries for the Blind

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, nice people at the low-mid levels. Good mission.

    Cons

    Terrible Executive leadership. God awful terrible. They take all the credit, have zero sense of self reflection. Very defensive and territorial culture. Mediocre, at best, for collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopeless. Need to completely clean house in the entire officer suite

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at National Industries for the Blind

    Pros

    mission based organization which also delivers a useful product - some very nice people - some very talented and smart people - interesting and diverse workforce

    Cons

    mission and operations function not very well in sync - NIB runs like a for profit corp rather than the 501c3 it is which can be a plus but isn't - executive management does not want staff input and isn't open to new ideas
