Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Ideal Innovations full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-Comprehensive benefit plans (although can very very expensive for a family)
-Nice perks like free tickets to sporting events, and travel awards

Cons

-Incompetent and unqualified senior management
-Low-balling employees on salaries and increases, while upper management received obnoxious pay and regular monthly and yearly bonuses NOT tied to performance
-Not focused on building business relationships.
-Negative employee culture - focus is on butts in seats and profits above employee treatment.

Advice to Management

Hire competent people that are actually qualified for the positions you select them for. Stop hand picking people and circumventing the hiring process that everyone else has to go through.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Depending on where you work, you may not have any interaction with the corporate office at all. This is a positive and a negative. They do have a tendency to hand out bonuses if your boss reports you as having done a job well done. Also, they give out holiday bonuses.

    Cons

    Working with the HR department is a nightmare. For a company this small, they don't really know who works for them, or call you back when you leave messages. Also, they have a tendancy to withhold raises, even when the company's profit margins are increasing.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the employees.

    "Lack of Structure"

    Pros

    Most of the employees are readily available and easy to speak with and get along with. They do offer benefits....

    Cons

    There is no structure nor written guidelines. Management is often biased and only concerned with self. No one takes responsibility of their own work or mistakes. The benefits leave much to be desired. If you are prior military then this will not affect you, however, for everyone else it may be more beneficial to look at alternative benefits. There are little to no incentives for CONUS employees, however, if you are OCONUS they shower you with incentives and additional perks. For all of the work that is done, don't expect anything in return. Senior management will take the credit and the bonuses for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Put procedures and guidelines in writing. There needs to be a way to evaluate employees and their level of work. Take responsibility for your actions.
