    I have been working at S & S Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    S&S is a family-owned company with big plans. The co-presidents are fourth-generation descendants of the company founder. Sitting on a legacy of over 100 years, they are determined to keep the company relevant and are prepared to spend and work to make that happen. They are smart and capable.

    Cons

    It's unclear whether their big plans will be successful. Spending lots of $$, work and stress. But (and this is a pro), leadership has the support of the employees. Everyone is rowing (and bailing) the same boat.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees have your back. Please have theirs as well. They are not pieces on a chess board.
