    Pros

    The people I work with are great. They are professional and always get the job done without complaining.

    Cons

    There is no real decision making. We come up with a solid strategy only to scrap it before we place the plan in motion. Too many "yes"people and not enough communication. The blame game is a constant theme. People are severely overworked and underpaid. No opportunity for growth

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a solid business plan or this company will not make it. Try to be more transparent and understanding when it comes to your employees.
