Approves of CEO

Pros

the pay is good and the benefits are good. If you like to travel you could have the opportunity to do so.

Cons

There is not much for employee recognition. The raises are not good at all, but that might have to do with the economy. If they have a good quarter/year...it should be reflected in the raises.

Advice to Management

reward your employees for work done above and beyond what their position requires. Share in the good fortune with the employees who make the business what it is.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Midwest locations, values and norms of behavior; high integrity; generous bonuses when the business does well ; collegial, low conflict culture ; high number of boomer retirements is opening opportunities for other generations. # 1 in industry with acceleratring growth provides promising future and stability.

    Cons

    Highly analytical organization where creative talents are not valued as highly. Taking risks often has more downside than the possible payoff is worth in terms of career impact as the "baggage" of failures can stay with you a long time. Short term thinking driven by obsession with SVA
    (shareholder value added) performance metric.

    Advice to Management

    Great companies are built and sustained by great people who are attracted to join and stay by great places to work.

    Competitive salary structure

    Cons

    Very little to no employee recognition
    Uses the good old boy network to hire middle managers
    Performance review does not count for much with respect to advancement
    No accountability when it comes to low performing employees
    Some Managers have a my way or the highway attitude.
    Lots of promotions occur in back room deals.

    Advice to Management

    You have initiated a section of people goals in performance review. If I had to provide a review of the Higher Management at Urbandale, you have failed in your people goals. Please stop using back room deals and good old boy network to hire and promote people.
