No opinion of CEO

I have been working at ECC full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good people, up to date IT, employee owned

Cons

Poor advancement opportunities, little to no training, salary not based performance, company willing to support certain very poor performers based on past relationships with complete disregard to those being hurt by that process, top management disconnected from everyday employees, poor communication with employee/owners, moral tends to be low for general workforce, not enough women in management, strong focus on safety but little focus on quality, upper management not held accountable for poor performing projects, old-boys-club - glass ceiling at play, almost the entire company is working in quadrant 1 (covey), does not learn from previous mistakes, without the benefits of small business status - management struggling.

Advice to Management

Salary and advancement opportunities should be based on performance, not on family, friends, and race. Nepotism will only weaken the company over time and the company has been around long enough that this has started to happen while top management looks the other way. Try to identify women for leadership roles.

    Pros

    ECC has a great servant-leadership management philosophy. Although they didn't always manage as they taught (do as I say, not as I do), it was a very good, and consistent working philosophy that worked well.

    Cons

    As above, personalities of strong leaders do not always match the company "talk".

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the staff, utilize your annual leadership conference to leverage the best from employees; do NOT always "punish" your best with work overload (Brady).
