Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Medical Benefits, Free Cable TV, Phone and Internet. Discounts to area attractions and sports tickets. Free Coffee. Pleasant Co-Workers. Fair Dress Code.

Cons

The lack of choice of hours. Difficulty getting time off regardless of seniority. Poor training methods. Management and supervisors concerned about themselves vs the welfare of employees. The promise of an "Open Door" policy only to have that policy work against you.

Advice to Management

Pretty soon your business will become irrelevant. I suggest you make things flexible for your workers to allow them to make a difference for customers.

    Terrible Senior Management team

    Must be on-call and ready to work 24x7x365
    Lack of staffing, means Directors often with no supervisors or managers
    HR Department is a puppet for Senior Management

    Advice to Management

    Create an independant HR department to annually interview Management employees to identify terrible senior managers

    Centralize all IT groups, IT in the Business groups does not work
