    Company offers good pay, good work life balance, a nice office environment. The company is large enough to allow for different opportunities.

    Was recently acquired by another company and after years of continued drive and focus to improve efficiencies, systems and customer service, they are stepping back what feels like to business 10 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Put more focus on the value of your employees, get to know them in order to help them work towards building their skills and fulfilling their career goals.

    Pros

    I like that there is a variety of projects to keep things interesting. What I do is definitely not boring, and I feel my professional development is encouraged. I also like the flexibility allowed in my schedule.

    Cons

    Sometimes, it appears that the senior management have no real sense of direction. Too many decisions seem to be "let's have one of these products too," without thinking out many of the needed details before selling a product

    Advice to Management

    "If you don't know which way you're going, you'll probably end up somewhere else." Also, try to make sure decisions made at the home office don't interfere with the ability of people at the satellite offices to get things done.
