Pros

Exciting and proven technologies. Extremely well respected manufacturer with in the transaction arena. Company name generally needs no introduction when speaking to prospective customers.

Cons

Almost entirely run by family members (i.e. brothers and sisters) and therefore zero chance of professional growth unless you're OK with the status quo. Makes having candid conversations, unless they are full of flattery, regarding Sr. Mgmt. as they are all related and like all families, they justify things even though evidence is provided about valid concerns.

Advice to Management

Pay for an anonymous survey on the attitudes/feelings of your employees. You be surprised at what you learn. Listen to the worker-bees, not mid-mgmt., as the mid-mgmt. will tell you what you want to hear and not what you need to hear. Work aggressively at gaining trust of employees to tell Sr. Mgmt. what is really going on and assure them of no retaliatory consequences - then act on it. It'll be hard to hear, but worthwhile hearing if you succeed in gaining the trust of your people.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at MagTek full-time

    Pros

    - High quality, well-positioned products
    - CEO Mimi Hart is intelligent, kind and approachable

    Cons

    - Middle management has some issues. They seem to be selected for their number of years with the company and not on their ability to work with people.

    Advice to Management

    - Additional training for middle management across the board, but specifically with interpersonal relations including legal considerations.
