I worked at MYMIC full-time (More than a year)
Great front-line people to work with.
Ownership is MIA and has been for years. Relied to much on CEO who was all talk with no plan and no real intelligence behind what actions he took.
Advice to Management
Fire the CEO, or simply get away from him as fast as possible without him filing a wrongful termination suit. Then, find another line of business where you actually want to be involved on a daily basis. To the Chairman of the Board of Directors: you are a smart man who knows his Marketing. You take back control of that function and take back control of the business. At you level, you should be involved in the uncovering of strategic opportunities via a robust program of Market Intelligence that yields leads on industries and segments relevant to what your business provides. Be evidence-driven in your marketing and insist that others are as well in their marketing proposals to you. Don't let anybody undertake any marketing program without showing you their research, their plan and their rationale for whey they think they have a better than %50 chance of success. This research and plan should cover competitors in the chosen field, overall sales of the product or service they are thinking of selling, and the approach to market (strategy) they are thinking of taking and why it it will result in competitive surprise and business accomplishment. Commit to a strategy of incremental commitment: test market, then roll-out, then constant monitoring via regular weekly metrics. Don't be afraid to take drastic action early if business plans do not yield fruit. Always have new project proposals coming in from the employees, but square it up against what you know from your strategic knowledge gained from your Market Intelligence program and your dealings from people out in the industries. I fear it is too late for MYMIC. LLC, but take my advice for any future businesses you think you might want to become involved in.
