    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the people were very professional.

    Cons

    Not a good environment for questioning the status quo. Company grew too fast in the last five years and operational processes were not reworked to keep up with the new environment. SAP upgrade turned into a nightmare that seems to not have an end in sight.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people more. Really listen, not just sling the corporate lingo about "teammate satisfaction" and the like.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They are one of the major employers of Tempe, AZ.

    Cons

    It's a low margin business and therefore difficult to invest into key initiatives that will drive the company forward. Couple this with pressures from wall street to continually grow the top and bottom lines. As a result, when revenues are lacking, the only way to respond is to cut costs and people.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make decisions based on personal agendas. Quit playing in your turf wars and just execute on the strategy!
