I have been working at Focus Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You *might* get to work with some excellent professionals who haven't left yet!
A certain degree of autonomony...because no one apparently is in charge.

Cons

Lost a ton of their best staff in the recent years.
Conglomerate of companies with no real plan to merge operations between verticals. Very inefficient.
Severely under-staffed in management.
Complex ownership structure which muddys the waters of how/why/who actually makes decisions.
Extreme workload.

Advice to Management

Bite the bullet. Bring in some management consultants and square the ship...or you'll sink. Smart people know when to ask for help...

    I have been working at Focus Corporation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location in up and coming area of Denver. Nice coworkers

    Cons

    Pay was horrible. The owner was the worst I've ever worked for. Manipulative and condescending, made several people cry and walk out. For a small company, he knew to hire people he can take advantage of. Worse job experience. The office was at ease when he was gone, which was pretty often luckily. He couldn't pay his bills within 60 days and it affected business only negatively.
