Current Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Redlands, CA
Current Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Redlands, CA
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Stable employment
Flexible work schedule
College-like campus
Not beholden to stockholders or quarterly numbers
Jack's vision of making the world a better place

Cons

Lack of promotion from within the organization
Lack of even cost of living allowances
Minimal 401K match
Benefits package is average at best
Vacation is capped at 4 weeks/year after 10 years of service

Advice to Management

Why do we keep hiring middle managers from outside the company? If existing management does not have somebody "waiting in the wings" that could step in when a manager leaves, what does that say about their abilities as a manager?

After 20 years of service you give employees a rubber chicken dinner in the parking lot/street and give out a glass paperweight in the shape of a magnifying glass without even bothering to engrave the employees name on it? Way to reward loyalty!!

    Promotion based on who you know, not productivity or performance

    New performance review primarily subjective, no support needed for negative appraisals

    Advice to Management

    Get back in touch with long time employees, without mgmt & HR intervention. Be careful with new HR regime. If you don't, things will continue to go south
