    Pros

    Coworkers were knowlegeable and easy to work with.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    None, no work life balance, no communication with staff, no respect for staff, uneducated district manager.

    Cons

    Everything, terrible 401k, district manager and sales team have 3 hour lunches on company's expense. District manager perpetuates gossiping about fellow employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put someone in a managerial position because he has worked in the field for 10 years. You need to at least train them if they have no formal education. Carefully check district managers expense report, you should be able to save money there instead of laying off employees.

    I have been working at gyrodata full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, great HR Department, good health benefits. Good 401K matching (has changed recently)

    Cons

    Upper management has taken a drastic turn for the worse in the last 8 months. One of the Regional Managers is an idiot. Unfortunately, he has the ear of the CFO and his tag along son. There were 2 good Vice Presidents, 1 has already left the building and the other is on his way out. Company values and employee moral is at an all time low.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company before you completely ruin it. Stop listening to bad advice, it is not productive in this downturn. Loyalty to employees is long gone from the company's mission statement. The damage has already been done and employees are starting to exit the company.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, flex hours, decent pay, generous 401K plan, employee insurance paid.

    Cons

    Clique mentality, not much direction, little communication to employees, no advancement of office employees. It's the oil business so there are ups and downs. The company had no layoffs until this year but that changed.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate.
