    Very unstructured company that lacks concern for the customer or their employees.

    Management really needs to find someone who can bring structure and stability to the company, instead of firing and hiring a new president every three years.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, lower level employees look out for each other, company attempts to keep employees happy with company picnics and parties.

    Cons

    Extremely high employee turnover rate, inept leadership team that doesn't know how the company systems or processes works, employees feel left to fend for themselves.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good for Kalamazoo, there are OK benefits, we have a new, albeit expensive, vending machine system, and there are ample family social events.

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate. There was, with the previous president, no direction in the company; or, at best, it changed every few months. No communication between, and even with-in, departments. Different departments do whatever they want in regards to technology and expect IT to support them.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it. Changing directions every other month does nothing for the employees but confuse them and make them feel crazy.
