Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Pay of salaried team members
Management's stock options and bonuses
Company's philanthropy and volunteerism
Quality of most facilities
Legacy of quality, customer service and giving back to community that was promoted by company's late founder

Cons

Job insecurity and instability
Workload
Unrealistic work expectations after major staff reductions
Management's lack of candor and honesty about what's happening

Advice to Management

Team members aren't stupid; tell them what's going on. Don't avoid communicating just because you don't like delivering bad news or because you feel guilty because you're still doing good, but so many team members aren't.

Quit "disappearing" team members; it's freaking the rest of us out.
