    Pros

    Starting up as a new company soon, so coming in on ground floor
    Like what I'm doing
    Has potential

    Cons

    Lack of employees with any expertise

    Employees should be held accountable for their own work and concentrate on getting it done for the whole company, not their own personal gain

    Leadership needs to be more honest and "walk the talk"

    Pros

    Small company, a few golden nuggets in staff

    Cons

    honest and integrity, politics incredible and worse than a larger corporation, leaders lack industry knowledge and vision for the future. Feedback is often asked for and change agents are asked to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Strategic thinking is critical to the success of this company

    Pros

    From what I can judge so early on, it seems like employees are content with their jobs. People are generally happy and helpful. One thing I noticed is that many employees that I have come across have been there for many years. Low turnover means that most employees must be content.

    Cons

    Some disorganization within my department, but new management just took over so it may take some time to get the department up and running efficiently.
