    Pros

    Great employees with a great history and knowledge of the industry.

    Cons

    Culture is horrible.
    Layoffs are non-stop
    Business is dying on the vine.
    Not focusing on core competencies
    President is paranoid narcissist that is dismantling this company
    Employee turnover is 200%

    Advice to Management

    The senior executives have allowed this business to be destroyed. The CEO and executive leadership have allowed the current president of this group to run it into the ground. Fire the president and focus on your competencies that once made this company great.

    Pros

    Lots of cool technology ideas floating through the organization.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership is unorganized and only values themselves and their own security. Will take advantage of throwing any worker bee under the bus to make it appear that they are making motion. President is the wort person I have every personally worked for. Very smart but just unprofessional and loves to blame others for his incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.


  7. The company is disorganized and is investing in too many things

    Pros

    The company has some great technology and manufacturing capabilities. They specialized in LEAN and the Toyota Process System. We produced some great products and ideas for products.

    Cons

    We did not know how to deliver. We preferred to plan, re-plan and then explain to Louisville about our plan but were never held accountable for not delivering our plan. We never hit our targets, we blamed everything on the customers or lack there of. We were quick to have an excuse. We also always wanted to invest in every new technology that we could sell, but never enough investment to make a difference in any one technology. We were great at research, but poor at development.

    Advice to Management

    Pick one or two areas for pursuit, and kill off the rest. Pick one or two horses to win, not the whole field. The management has too many layers. Why do we have so many VPs, Sr. Directors, Directors, and Managers? Do we have any employees?

    Pros

    They were great to me, gave me good raises every year. It was an interresting place to work and i learned a lot working there.

    Cons

    My supervisor for part of my time there was very unfair. I complained about him severl times and i was told it would be taken care of but that never happened. While i was there at least.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employees that you have that you KNOW are doing a good job for you, and do what you can to keep them happy.

    Pros

    The opportunity to create new products to serve an important market within the military and security community.

    Cons

    Constant change of focus as to the company's near term direction and goals. The location is in one of the worst areas of the city so it is a fair commute if you want to live in a decent neighborhood.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time on the other side of the wall in order to get a clue as to what is going on within your company. There are less than 250 total employees, you don't need a president, 6 Vice Presidents, 10 Department Managers and a Plethora of Specialists

    Pros

    Allowed me to make meaningful connections within related industries. Achieved personal and career growth within an excellent team of colleagues and middle management.

    Cons

    Senior leadership were too isolated from the organization to communicate effectively. The end result was turnover and failed projects. Interdepartmental politics were crippling.

    Advice to Management

    Foster organizational innovation, don't stop chasing improvement, but don't make change the scapegoat for universal failure.
