    Pros

    Good environment. Managers are approachable, co-workers are friendly, the work is challenging and there are oppurtunities for personal development.

    Cons

    Can be slow to implement change

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive at finding work for your department, at giving your employees the opportunity to use their strengths, and at making sure the client has priority. People are falling to sleep! (Literally)

    Pros

    It's consulting work so for Engineers times can be rather busy or really slow. Benefits are okay, but the best part is most departments work on Compressed Work Week so every other Friday is off for members. If you work hard it seems like there's a good path to leadership.

    Cons

    Because it's a bit of a small town company a lot of times department heads are in the small town of Muscatine, Iowa. Not a whole lot of people are eager to move here, though it's a nice place. A lot of the employees have been here for a very long time too so it's hard to move up and sometimes they are very stuck on how they want to do certain things.

    Pros

    Employees are called members and are treated well. The company offers competitive benefits, and above average compensation. Management encourages personal development and employees are recognized for their performance and tenure.

    Cons

    Many employees have long tenure with the organization. This makes it difficult to implement change and trust new ideas. Employees in the engineering field have many opportunities for advancement, others in operations and administration do not.

    Pros

    The up and coming leadership in Stanley is excellent. They see into the future and know how to build the bridge that will take the company into their next successful 100 years.

    Cons

    Upper management is stuck in the middle America mind set of about 75 years ago. The "That's the way we've always done it" mind set is not allowing the company to move/grow into this century.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of 60 per cent of upper management. Greggs is keeping his little fiefdom in Muscatine walled up. He/They haven the faintest idea that the bulk of their business is being done outside of Iowa. The world is a broad place, stop making strategic hires based on your weather or not the person will fit into the Muscatine Kool Aid society. You are Little Tiny Fish in an HUGE pond. Not the other way around, get Realistic.

    Pros

    Very strong in CM work. Local management is awesome and decent benefits. Employee owned business is good for the benefits package. They seem to want employees to do well and reward good work and innovation.

    Cons

    Very conservative company, struggles in design- employee owned....is a bit of a farce because it is mostly upper management that owns ALL the stock. They are somewhat slow to move and get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Move out of Muscatine. It makes for a very non-approachable and "moated" protection from the real world. This isn't the 80's and don't be afraid to retire. There are more than capable people in the company that could do great things if you would quit hindering them.
