    "Going downhill"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The CEO has a good vision but needs to up the morale. Company has a relatively good product for a good price.

    Cons

    The company is too focused on cutting costs/corners in every level at the expense of its employees. Employees are constantly worried that they will be fired/laid off due to management's fear tactics. There is a lot of nepotism, favortism, and backstabbing going around. Employees that have been there for years have not seen raises. Low to zero appreciation for employees or their efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in managers that are not just out for themselves but that see the big picture and genuinely are interested in seeing their employees develop. The employee morale will see a boost if you do this. Invest in your employees and see them as an asset instead of a liability. Ditch the fear tactics.
