    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The community get a great quality product. The training to serve the community is very detailed. Great teamwork spirit in the workplace.

    Cons

    To much fucus on saving cost that is negatively impacting the quality of the product. The focus on waste reduction is negatively impacting the moral of the associates. The after sales service experience has become a battle with the consumer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the bottom line. Keep cutting waste. Start using re-cycled motor oil.The savings on each vehicle can equal one dollar. $1 times 150,000 vehicle sold = $150,000 per year. It's time to go Green. A great marketing tool. Replace all paper towel dispensers with blow dryers. Another savings to the bottom line.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Time away policy for salaried employees, lots of people take anywhere from 3-6 weeks off. It's 8:30 or 9-5 for most positions. Few people have to stay late.

    Cons

    It can feel quite dull because the company is growing so slowly and it's incredibly PC. The salaries are also below average.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more before all the good people leave. Also, the culture is sometimes so relaxed that people become lazy.
