    Pros

    The company had a wonderful product base that is distributed throughout the world. The benefits provided are adequate. The potential for the company are great..

    Cons

    There is little leadership that is grounded with the employees. Changes for better inefficiencies are not addressed. The different divisions do not work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with the employees.

    Pros

    Great team, great products and great ideas for growth. There are some dynamic people in the workforce, and the offices are very welcoming with great color scheme.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, bad termination practices, does not honor employees as they should. There is a negative air and much discussion of dramatic situations that the company, unfortunately, has put themselves in by making poor business decisions that are clearly seen by all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to catch employees doing something right, and provide better training. Think about the consequences of critical business decisions, and honor your people. Being more 'solutions based' will do wonders, and empower your workforce.
