No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good workers, great team environments, and hungry individuals. Good Benefits and 401k package. A lot of face time with upper management, able to voice opinion (however usually falls through the cracks).

Cons

The division I work for used to be very nimble, think on the fly, and have an entrepreneurial mindset. However over the last 2 years the company has literally been on hold with any strategic thinking. This organization may be a positive one in the future when it pulls its head out of the sand, however currently I would not recommend this organization to anyone unless the price was extremely right.

Advice to Management

Think proactively not re actively. Think about innovation to stay ahead of the curve rather than following the pack. Global expansion is key to diversification.....BOI does not think this way. Make calculated risks for future rewards (currently extreme minimum risks are taken which equals minimal gains to lower level employees).

    Pros

    Good pay, reasonable time off.

    Cons

    Senior management is a joke and unless you are a favorite, you do not get promoted. All hiring is based on who likes who best, not about competencies.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at HR practices!
