Pros

A very fulfilling vision and mission for the company. The owner is serious about the commitment to sustainability. Great culture. A genuinely fun place to work where you know you are valued.

Cons

A lot of firefighting. Probably too diverse for the size of the business - which leads to under-capitalization of all business lines. Management is average.

Advice to Management

Be more proactive about making necessary personnel changes. Streamline the business lines to reduce unnecessary overhead and drive more profitability.

    Pros

    There is a good balance between work and the personal life - overtime is little or none. I'm given free reign to complete my work with little management intervention.

    Cons

    Senior Management is poor - leading to lousy project management and cost overruns. Over-emphasis on diversity instead of concentrating on making the best product for the customer. Professional development in my department has been nil, causing general dissatisfaction - there is nowhere to grow or go unless you are part of the favored management team. Basically cronyism runs rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to the diverse collection of experience you have instead of the same voices over and over. Pull back on the new business division creation until the others have settled down. The constant stream of new projects damages the core businesses which could be making more money if given more time.
