Pros

The good aspect of working here is there is no shortage of challenges. Something new everyday, new requests from customers. And the compensation, currently is very fair.

Cons

The downside would be the lack of fore site from management in regards to consistent work loads and (WIP) work going through the line- Work In Progress-

Advice to Management

I would advise management (VP level) a 2 prong approach. 1st : Stop manipulating work flow to boost quarterly numbers and stick to a consistent plan and 2nd: Come up with a strategic plan to boost quarterly earnings via new sales and marketing.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    As long as you are getting the aggressive work load completed most managers allow you to work a somewhat flexible schedule. Some telecommuting is permitted even for a select few hourly employees who know someone.

    Cons

    Long hours most employees are over worked; long days, nights and weekend on a regular basis are expected. The norm is you don't get promoted unless you know someone. Talanted employees are not recognized or rewarded here. The lack of integrity trickles down from senior managment not having the degrees and education they profess to have. It insults those of us who have worked hard to fulfill the requirements for our degrees and education.

    Advice to Management

    Managment should learn to recognize and reqard their talented employees. You can not be a leader in your industry if you are not willing to pay for the talanted employees who actually get the work done in spite of their managers.
