    Pros

    Original company with original owner was an awesome place to work.
    Exciting, family atmosphere.
    Good salaries and hours.

    Cons

    After Steelcase took over and kicked out the original owner, it was on a solid downhill slide to nowhere. Laid off a bunch of people, cut the salaries of those they kept and kept the worthless managers they needed to fire. Had it not been for the decisions of a particular manager, PolyVision may have pulled out with the Thunder product, but it was grossly mishandled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice necessary. Finally closing the doors to the main office and downsizing.
    One word - don't keep ANYONE you had before from Steelcase.

    Pros

    Company has very flexible hours. And ability to work unsuperviised.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, no support from management. No decisions are ever made Deadlines never met. Always working in a reactive mode. Cheap company...travel and salaries. Hires unqualified people due to low salary. Managment does not take ownership or accountability for anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr. Management needs to take ownership and accountability for their departments. Currently no consequences if not met, therefore nothing gets done.

    Pros

    broad variety of work because everyone left is doing what 7 - 10 others did before they were let go.

    Cons

    This is a company that had unique and ground breaking products. They just couldn't develop into durable hardware and software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn out the lights allready!
