    Pros

    Work environment is casual. Employees are friendly towards each other.

    Cons

    The status of the company is a secret to all employees except for the President and his few close confidants. He will hold a company-wide meeting and explain how everything is looking up and everything is wonderful... 2 weeks later there will be group lay off. Example: There was a company wide paycut, one month later approximately 15 employees and a guest each were taken on an all expenses paid trip to Jamaica. The President, VP, and CFO also went on the trip. Over the course of the last 2 yrs roughly 75 employees were laid off and the positions were not refilled.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees, they aren't as gullible and stupid as you seem to think. The company meetings have turned into a joke. We leave the room and know that maybe 5% of what was passed on might be true, the rest is filler. Enough low level employees have been let go, things still aren't improving, possibly time to assess the company from the top down?
