    Pros

    People, people, people, people, people

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch with the work force

    Advice to Management

    Many people in senior management positions are new to the company. They need to take the time to actually meet their employees. When Sam Thomas was in charge everyone knew who he was. He would often visit the plant and you could find him talking with production workers. We had plant meetings with CEO and other top managers. My guess is that 70% of employees don't know the name of the current CEO and closer to 80% don't know what he looks like. Same for the rest of the senior management team.

    Pros

    Company manages by quarterly / annual goals.

    Cons

    Has developed a reputation for boom and bust. Quick to layoff employees during slow business cycles.

    Advice to Management

    Too quick to hire, open new offices and new plants. If business slows down layoffs occur, offices close and plants are consolidated. Be more plan-full.

  3. "Lots of change."

    Pros

    The company benefits packages are good.

    Cons

    Too many changes to the company this year. Several executive level management changes, facilities being closed, relocation of the Corporate office and acquisitions. Significant turnover of staff.

    Advice to Management

    The business reasons for the changes are good but it's too many all at once.

    Pros

    Decent 401K and potential bonus

    Cons

    Middle and senior management has made MANY bad decisions that have cost 100's of people their jobs while they maintain theirs. Employees that were experts in their field have been replaced by those who say they are experts.

    Advice to Management

    Review middle management decisions closer to see what is really going on. Should have valued the employees that were TRUE experts in their field.

    Pros

    good co-workers, decent 401k match,

    Cons

    Company is dysfunctional, lack communication, planning, vision, terrible customer focus. Very disappointed. business has plummeted year after year since Chart acquired the company. Management fails to learn from their mistakes. .

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your mistakes and change your attitude toward customer service. Either that or sell your BioMed division to someone that can better manage the business and focus on the customer's need and service quality.

    Pros

    Most people want to do a good job. Product development is good, manufacturing equipment is excellent. Process control is above average. Chart tries to build comraderie through lunches and off-site events.

    Cons

    Management is afraid of the union. Lasting changes are impossible when crybaby floor employees get their way. Supervisors shield poor performing employees because their superiors won't support them. Management is secretive if you're not on the "inside".

    Advice to Management

    Get some stones and cut the dead wood. Get onto the floor and care about people more. Doing things in secret won't get people to buy into your ideas.

    Pros

    There are some very good people who will work their tails off for the customers and their fellow co-workers.

    Cons

    The management team seems to have been trained by the same management trainers that consulted on the movie "Office Space".

    Advice to Management

    People are the intellectual property that will grow your company into the future, not the bottom line,
