    Not a place for new ideas to flourish.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on excellence rather than maintaining the status quo - Shake up complacent middle managers - Listen to and empower your best workers

    Lucky their best talent doesn't know how much more rewarding it is elsewhere.

    Pros

    There are many great colleagues and one can learn a lot. They have some really fantastic clients and the business is involved in a variety of interesting industries.

    Cons

    The owner doesn't understand or appreciate technology, and relies on underlings whose only motivation is to please him and keep their jobs. Some of the administrators have too much authority and not enough knowledge, and arrogantly assume their coworkers are idiots.

    Advice to Management

    Stop disrespecting and letting your best talent get away, find and cultivate your best workers, give them some authority to buck complacent management.

    It contains all of the trappings of a small and large company, with very few of the benefits.

    Pros

    - Great colleagues - Flexible work environment - Multitude of client interactions and expectations to develop inter-personal skills and business tact

    Cons

    - Isolated departments, with muddled lines of communication - Lack of clear communication from upper management - Lack of clear career advancement path - Lack of clear responsibility - Unprofessional firing practices (no notice or prior warnings) - A reactive, versus proactive approach to handling issues, internally and externally

    Advice to Management

    - Give us a clear goal for the company that everyone can look up to, aside from, "Let's make these sales figures." - Promote true innovation and openness within the organization to tap the full potential of their employees (there are quite a few that are under-utilized and having their skills go to waste) - Re-evaluate the hiring process. It takes too long, is too elaborate, and provides no transparency for the organization as a whole.
