    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Leadership position from a size standpoint in the industry. Many solutions they can deliver to customers who definitely do need the solutions - trenchless. Neat people across the country in a variety of positions if you have the opportunity to interact with them.

    Cons

    Senior management is inept. The current and immediately prior CEO are/were focused only on their perception by Wall Street, not their employees and more importantly not their customer base. Do not have a realistic view of how to lead an organization and a business. They are/were paupers looking for approval from their board and Wall Street.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR LOWEST LEVEL EMPLOYEES ON UP! They will talk to you and provide feedback that will help you if they do not think they'll get fired for being honest.

    Pros

    Good location...clean offices (at least the ones that have been renovated). Big player in their industry, should be one with upside.

    Cons

    Very political. Inept HR team. Poor executive leadership. Favoritism, back room deals run rampant in promotion discussions. Even those with years of strong service tossed aside for political gain.

    Advice to Management

    Learn more about your own team by talking to those a few levels down. Show appreciation for those that do the actual work.
