    Pros

    Immediate co-workers were wonderful people and cared about the quality of work they were producing. Enjoyed the enthusiasm of the individuals on my team.

    Cons

    There is an overwhelming amount of micromanagement coming from the new CEO. In addition, a once fun and creative enviroment has become hostile, unorganized, and frankly an enviroment that the majority of people at the company hate working in. Instead of coming together to innovate and enjoy their work, people are now there only for the paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to allow your employees to do their jobs, that is why they were hired. Employees are being stifled and the business is suffering. In addition, a little compassion, understanding, and interest in your employees would help a lot. Stop treating them like dollar signs and start treating them like people.

    Pros

    Free parking, free temp tattoos and a paycheck with minimal benefits

    Cons

    The CEO has driven out alost all competent people. He is not looking for solid people to do the job, but for "yes" people. Tends to favor women in a sexual harassment filled environment. Turnover is rampant and the CEO takes no ownership of the results of his decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Advice for the Board - Hire a CEO who is more interested in his people than one who wants to be a big fish in a small pond. Stop the bleeding before it is too late

  3. Many unhappy employees -- too much turnover

    Pros

    Can't think of any.pros about it. Fun product.

    Cons

    Poor benefits -- lose your vacation if you don't take it and sometimes you can't take it. Many employees looking for other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Need to treat people better. Employees are used and then thrown away. Not treated with decency or respect. Very poor working environment.

    Pros

    Health benefits and 401 K.

    Cons

    Low salaries, and no work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    CEO of the company to pay close attention to Savvi division management. There are issues of non-professionalism there and a lot of mistakes.

    Pros

    It's a job with a paycheck. Large enough that you may be able to hide from the internal warfare between management.

    Cons

    There is a ridiculous "Cultural Contract" posted throughout the facility and all of the tenets have been violated by the various management individuals, including the former CEO, who ran this place. rumor has it the board forced him out because of his behavior. Employees live in fear, triangulation is epidemic, nepotism is as well and there is sexual harassment training; but such harassment was endemic by certain senior management. This company is on the way down. Turnover amongst mid-management high. Blue-collar employees treated extremely poorly.

    Advice to Management

    The company places no value on it's employees. That's probably due to the personalities that have run it along with the venture capital-oriented ownership. It's a classic example of corporate double-speak.

  8. Think twice before working here

    Pros

    In Tucson, a job is a job, but this is not the place to spend your working hours. Location OK, free parking and some benifits.

    Cons

    Really poor and inexperienced management and supervision at all levels. Former owners relative runs rough shod over all areas. Senior management is not involved or effective.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate all supervision and management, reduce amount by 25% and replace all current management with people management with proper training. Basically, start over with some quality hands on management.

    Pros

    location, being in Tucson area and one of few employers that hires, usually due to high turnover or firing of current employees.

    Cons

    No opportunity, too much supervision that does little to nothing same goes for the so called President and CEO of the company

    Advice to Management

    Get some professionalism and supervision with some professional training, treat people with some respect, quit bad mouthing employees behind their backs.

    Pros

    Tucson business, casual dress code, many co-workers friendly, close to freeway. PC and Apple equipment somewhat current as well as software.

    Cons

    No creative freedom or ability to express new ideas. All level of managers just doing what will keep them out of trouble..... survival mentality. People treatment and management deplorable.

    Advice to Management

    House clean- Get rid of all supervision from CEO through Management and replace with professionals with some experience and talent. Several Management in past had vision, but anyone with some real forward thoughts, ideas or vision are quickly eliminated... retaining the remaining family memeber in management just made things worse, hands off Senior Management add nothing to the mix.
