    Pros

    Good atmosphere in the field. Good teamwork when you get to know people. Fringe benefits are nice. Some first line managers are great to work for, others are just along for the ride. Very military friendly.

    Cons

    "Good ol' boy system" is definitely in place here. Most of it is in senior management. There has not been a raise in 5 years. Constant pressure on field service to sell product. Sales is either incompetent or lazy. Executive management has lost focus on the employees that are the bread and butter for the company. Not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. You are losing good employees because first line management finds that it is extremely difficult to get rid of bad\non-productive employees. There needs to be an overhaul in senior management including VP's and other executive management. They have been around forever and there are no fresh ideas. It is always business as usual on how to cut costs. They have forgotten what it is like to be on the front line and their decisions make it harder on the employees that are working the hardest. This creates an environment with very low moral.
