Pros

really good folks who work there. alot of enthusiasm and excitement about what is going on in the company and industry. s. management seem generally interested in the little folk. and although it sounds childish -it's actually nice to work at place where p.c.ness is frowned upon while manners are applauded.

Cons

not alot of brain share going on because folks are either too busy or since it's 'old hat' to them they just assume everyone else on the planet knows. also it seems that there are two companies under one umbrella. one is the old guard who do things there way -damn it. and then the other is the young turks who are going to bust their asses to make whatever they do a success. and sometimes it feels these two companies are splitting apart at the seams. and i find it that since senior management is SO accessible that everyone in the company feels they have the god given right to challenge and discuss every bloody decision made. on the surface this isn't inherently bad but when folks who have the soundbite view of an issue are spoutting off about something quite complex -one can get the impression that the patients are running the asylum.

Advice to Management

encourage interdepartmental communication!!!!!!!! and fix the damn a/c - heating in the office!!!!! nothing can kill a person's desire to go to work faster than knowing they are going to freeze their asses off for 8hrs while duplicating someone else's efforts who sits 10ft away.

    Re-evaluate accounting and administrative roles in relation to core business functions; Promote better COMMUNICATION and TRAINING in these departments. Company is missing out on many individuals talents.
