    Pros

    Doellstedts- all of the Doellstedts are hard working caring individuals;Christmas is a great time; Nice co-workers (sometimes); Free parking; Goats next door

    Cons

    Senior management (2 individuals) micromanages staff and does not make staff feel valued. There is little opportunity for growth. Skills and knowledge must be obtained on your own time. Company does not train staff or provide ongoing education. Employee evaluation judges employees based on adds to skills and knowledge although it is not provided or offered.

    Employees that clearly have bad attitudes and work habits (or lack of work) are not dealt with. They are tolerated and their opinions are taken into consideration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act professional. Seek input from and include staff. Replace 2 senior managers.
