Pros

The employees and middle management are great to work with and with new CEO leadership who will have some innovative ideas, this company could be a better success. Employees here will always help each other, unfortunately this does not continue to the top. The company has invested in infrastructure in the past which has modernized the company to a degree.

Cons

The lack of authentic leadership is destroying any type of motivation and camaraderie that existed. The laying off of employees to show positive results to stockholders has destroyed a trusted work environment. The attitudes toward diversity when it comes to minorities is not progressing. The lack of transparency has employees not trusting their leadership. Promoting from a 'good old boy' concept is not making us a smarter company.

Advice to Management

New CEO; More innovation; Create Diversity; Create positive partnerships.

    Pros

    Profit sharing - in that you'll be fully divested within 7 years
    Good benefits - except that they are currently increasing costs to cushion the blow they think they'll take with the new health care laws.

    Cons

    Management's inability to convey the true direction of the company.
    Playing field is definitely not level.
    Minorities are judged on a much stricter level than everyone else. Note that there are NO upper-level minorities within FG... at least last I checked.

    Advice to Management

    Include staff - let them know the big picture and how they are a part of it.
    Promote based on experience, performance, and level of aptitude.
