    Pros

    Great benefits. Extensive holidays and flex days. Mostly friendly, competent people. Good pay and generous share purchase program. Lindbergh project looks solid. CEO is very knowledgeable and avoids over promoting.

    Cons

    Heavy debt load depresses stock price

    Internal communications often scare employees through over sharing re headcount targets etc.

    Underdeveloped time management and interpersonal skills among some members of the leadership group harm productivity and create needless, widespread stress.

    Policies and even strategy that seemed sacred can suddenly change unpredictably.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you hire and let them do their jobs, because micromanaging is demoralising. Micromanaged employees with no authority will stop making decisions. Seeking and really hearing employee feedback can be an opportunity to reinforce loyalty and improve results.

    Pros

    There are some good middle leaders and lots of people who are eager to do a good job. Performance by the company has been quite poor for too long.

    Cons

    There's a lack of information and strategy & the absence of belief / vision about where it's all headed. Employees are not respected or really listened to which is leading to lots of the really good people leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Do a survey and act on the feedback. The CEO is a good technician but poor leader who keeps blaming & firing people for poor performance.

    Pros

    Great people, lots of opportunity for advancement. I was given a lot of responsibility and fulfilling work. I love going to work.

    Cons

    Small company, some people may feel that they need a larger company atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    I have a very good relationship with my supervisor and think they are doing a good job leading the team.
