    I have been working at 3E Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    New President is excellent and has a solid vision for the company. He is compassionate and cares about the employees and the company.

    Cons

    More work/life balance would go a long way with building employee trust and engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Reminder to some of the management, efficiency is not everything, you don't want to lose the human aspect only looking at the numbers.

    I have been working at 3E Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Small company feel but global reach
    - You get the opportunity to jump in immediately, it doesn't take years of ladder climbing to make a difference
    - large household name customer base

    Cons

    - Senior management strategy & direction is vaguely, if ever communicated.
    - Culture is very silo-ed and "Not my fault, not my problem"
    - HR policies are bizarre and randomly enforced

    Advice to Management

    -Don't think you're the smartest people in the room
    -Trust your employees with the truth
    - learn the difference between leadership and management
    - Focus on creating a culture or respect and collaboration

    I worked at 3E Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good learning opportunity personally for a period of time.

    Cons

    Things became toxic when the former CEO was transitioned out. There was a glimpse of hope things would improve with a new CEO, however, the hope was short lived. There is no trust in the leadership and absolutely no respect from senior leadership to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take the course Crucial Conversations so you can learn to listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Location is good. Flexible hours. Work is not complicated. They have seasoned employees who can be good mentors. They have company-location-specific activities and fun activities from time to time.

    Cons

    They cannot keep the good people Most people that leave have done so much for very little pay. Focused on qty vs quality of service to customers. Managers who have just the technical ability with lack of people skills should probably give more attention to that aspect of their set of skills.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not play favorites.

    I have been working at 3E Company full-time

    Pros

    Some people are nice and cordial. Some bosses are flexible because they know they have to make up for the low pay. The parent company is robust. This subsidiary is a dud.

    Cons

    Low pay, ok benefits. Uneven workload. Management styles encourage people to not work hard. They pay low wages so they let you slack...or know they can't force you to work harder. There is no incentive to work hard for this company because there is no prospect of moving higher. You either like the work and keep doing it or quit after few years.

    Management is clueless and spineless, can't advice the CEO worth a dime. The different business units silently battle each other. They made the employee filled out an anonymous survey and then went to the team with the lowest response and demand answers.

    There's a lot of old timers working there, which make you think it's a good company. But, it's not. Those that stayed either has no other prospect or is content with the low pay, low responsibility work.

    They keep saying they want to expand, but management has no clue. The CEO has no vision.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility. Get rid of dead weight. Pay more to get quality employees. Pay recently hired employees more so they want to stay. Make changes that the employees want. Be inspiring.
