No opinion of CEO

Pros

generally supportive of professional development and training of salaried employees. Fairly stable business. rational decision making, less office politics than many other places, not many unecessary meetings

Cons

old school management style, lack of any common culture, lack investment in modern IT tools (intranet), minimal community involvement / social responsibility, frequent layoffs / job eliminations, no initiatives to make work more fun / build teamwork, issues with work/life balance in certain departments

Advice to Management

make some effort to improve the internal communications within the company. very little communication from senior management to the people in the field

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Kaiser is very well-positioned in their space, and has an excellent reputation in the industry. Folks are generally pretty nice, and management does a fairly good job of allowing employees to balance work and life.

    Cons

    The management team, while loaded with several top notch individuals, also has some dead wood that needs to be cleaned out. One could infer that the company does not want to rock the boat, and that the board is clearly okay with that strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Carefully evaluate the people that are at a mid-level manager position and above, as there are some clear opportunities to upgrade talent without taking on any undue risk.
