    "Classic founder led company that can't grow beyond a certain level because of the idiosyncrasies of the founder."

    I worked at BDI full-time

    Pros

    Great product with a loyal retail and customer base.

    Cons

    High level of micromanagement with 'one' accepted way of doing things. Diversity of views is not encouraged or appreciated. Outside 'experts' are more highly valued than employees. The core value of 'sweating the details' is taken to an extreme and provides the founder license to meddle until a product is launched. Performance feedback is not provided.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate diversity of views. Focus on the result and not the process. The company has talented employees. Let them do their job. Praise success and mentor when results are not what you expect.

    I worked at BDI as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    NO real pro's just no training and hot and cold work.

    Cons

    The branch I worked at had promised for 21 months I would be made permenant, did not happen

    Advice to Management

    Get managers that aren't having affairs with each other and customers.

    Pros

    I had a positive experience at BDI. Freedom to work where I wanted that day. I was able to call the owner at any time about anything. I was able to meet people along the way. This was a union job and I was close to retiring soon.

    Cons

    The owner thought that the Sales Manager was the best just because "he makes money for the company". His reputation was poor in the industry as his follow through was poor. This gave us a bad name. Having a poor service reputation in a service company is not a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Company is out of business so it does not matter.

    Pros

    Nice hourly pay and flexible schedule. I enjoyed working with my clients and their families. There were a few materials to sign out. There were so nice team members who really cared about the job.

    Cons

    Extensive travel and Uncoordinated office administration. The secretary was very unprofessional in both appearance and attitude. Based treatment off personal biased opinion. Made for uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    More training for administration. More organization of Tss and bsc teams to ensure continuity of care.

    Pros

    you can make decent money if you only play the short game

    What was a once great sales driven company has devolved into a secret society of power wielding management.

    Advice to Management

    You catch more flies with honey, than vinegar.
