No opinion of CEO

Pros

They truly value people and are one the the classiest organizations I have ever worked for. They manufacture very high quality, however the furniture industry has unfortunately become extremely "commoditized".

Cons

They are going through a very difficult transition period trying to figure out where to go and what to do next. They are very "bean counter" driven at this point with not a single executive with a sales background and they are unfortunately losing their identity.

Advice to Management

Get sales leader on the Executive Leadership team. You are about to have a major brain drain - especially with your very disgruntled Strategic Account Management Team.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Wonderful Workspace - furniture, amenities, cafeteria
    Good Work/Life Balance - for those who work in the office anyway
    Focus on Quality - truly, all employees have a passion to produce the best product

    Cons

    Downward Communication - much of it feels like non-executives are lucky to be given information, as if management is doing a favor by communicating outside of their offices
    Mysterious Selection - as in lots of companies, how promotions or eliminations are decided seems to be a mystery

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in keeping the company going through this economic downturn, Keep communication coming in a more authentic, honest way and before the press gets it.
