No opinion of CEO

Pros

Superior quality in product. People generally want to be there and work hard. Very flexible in working with your work life balance.

Cons

Management is extremely cautious in all situations. Seem to want to have one person to do the work of 3. Lack of training when starting. No real professional development conversations going on with supervisors.

Advice to Management

Make sure that you are looking at your business needs and your staff and understand that when a group loses three people, they need to be replaced, not have their work dumped onto the shoulders of others.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Management was very supportive with providing the tools needed to enhance my skill set or directing me to a position where my skills would be best utilized. Everyone is very friendly, family friendly, and has a great attitude about their work.

    Cons

    The slow business industry leads to some rough economic patches where you're unsure if you are about to get laid off or if you will keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    Con: Be more enthusiastic and energetic. Some of the company communications were dull and non-exciting.

    Pro: Keep up with hiring managers who actually care about the worker and who provide tools/training to enhance technical know-all.

    No innovation, just add some lipstick to the pig products and call it something new
    Management created an atmosphere where people no longer cooperated with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Please retire and get some people with an innovative streak in place.
