Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Flexible schedule and flex time
Competiive pay
Adequate benefits

Cons

This company is successful in spite of its leadership. There is little to no feedback for job performance. You have to self evaluate your own performance because managers rarely provide feedback at all. Like another post indicated, titles are used to increase pay. There are too many Directors, Sr Directors, VPs, etc and the titles do not reflect the abilities of the individual or their accomplishments.
Very little, and not effective, communication between departments.
Little opportunity for continued learning within the company to encourage employee growth.

Advice to Management

Do a complete top to bottom review to analyze manpower, duties, positions, and effectiveness.
Get finance under control to pay bills on time. To have invoices 120 plus days late for both large and small accounts is unacceptable for a publicly traded company of this size. Fix the issues before if effects investors and employees. It is already effecting vendor relationships as some cut off service until payment is made. There really is no excuse for non-payment.

    Advice to Management

    read above about the cons and focus on improving each one of them so that employees don't feel that they are just a number with no value. Giving yourselves raises while telling the rest that they are lucky to have jobs is not good leadership and does nothing to instill loyalty and inspirational work.
