Pros

The company is growing very fast and in some areas there is growth potential.

Cons

The middle management is conused by some of the growth and change. Positions are open and need to be filled with quality candidates, however the current structure does not allow for those who challenge the "Good Ole Boys" way of doing things.

Advice to Management

Look into the lower level workers and how happy they are. Challenge mid-level managers to improve the workforce morale. Offer incentives to employees and a better benefot package.
