Pros

Unique well made products...early Macro was exciting, market aggressive, customer centric, paid well and had a decent family oriented management style that meshed well with the agricultural industry.

Cons

NW plant bled sales & profits causing pressure on sales outside NW.
Former CEO replaced with a "wolf in sheeps clothing" who wasn't to be trusted from day ONE in anything he said or did. Completeley stalled company progress and killed morale from the top down...

Advice to Management

Value your loyal employee's with honest and open communication, provide opportunity and career development, promote from within and regret you ever hired Pat Brandt!!

    Pros

    Great people and customers. One of the largest employers in Fairfield, CA.
    They pay above local wages, annual reviews and are profitable.

    Cons

    Raging turnover and you can not trust them. They say one thing and do something else.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees - tell them the truth.
    When you do a restructure and tell people they are on the team don' t turn around and have one more layoff. There were at least 6 different layoffs during the time that I worked there and the company is making money???


  2. "No growth opportunities in a fearful nad low energy business environment"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good products, loyal employees, paid well, decent benefits in the early days...methodically cut back by former CEO who was incented to sure up the balance sheet, generate bottom line profits for the shareholders and in the end he would benefit.

    Cons

    Was managed remote control by absentee owner, stagnant growth opportunities, unrealistic product sales growth expectations, no one was safe from wrath of former CEO and owner.
