Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Family-oriented atmosphere - they treat everyone great on the personal level.

Cons

Family-oriented atmosphere - too many actual family members and close friends work at the company. Poor performers are rarely let go, and too much perceived bias is present. Management team has been in place for over 25 years with no management experience outside of this company.

Advice to Management

Bring in fresh blood at the highest management levels. Remove the conflicts of interest with family members, girl-friends, etc being direct reports of each other. Jim needs to either step completely out of running the company, or be directly involved on a daily basis. His current state of "stepping back" yet still being involved in key decisions has created an atmosphere where nobody wants to make an important decision.

    I have been working at Embree Construction full-time

    Pros

    Embree is family conscious, provide food, Christmas party, lunch and learns, and team building activities and they give back to the community.

    Cons

    Upper Management is stuck in their ways, there is a lack of training with most positions, no processes and procedures in place.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of your employees and the way the company does things. It is great to give back to the community but spend time being more involved with the company.
