Negative Outlook

I worked at NELSON full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The opportunity to work with a few great people who give too much of their time and talent to a poorly managed organization.

Cons

CEO, COO, CFO have not the slightest grasp of what it takes to run a professional services organization. They constantly churn through people who make the mistake of not falling iniline with the so-called Nelson culture. With this reputation, the organization has become "a last resort" employer as only candidates desperate for a job will go there.
The CEO has zero experience outside the company (its the only company he's worked for), a company his father founded and where the he has now pushed his father and brother into minor roles.
Working here is akin to being in a book-of-the-month club - whatever the CEO is reading, that will be the theme of his next quarterly Town Hall; "the new realities of the new economy" and "the 20 mile march". Advice to clients and potential clients... there are many far superior organizations with more stable financial status from which to buy planning and design services.

Advice to Management

Retain a Board of Directors with real experience and industry connections. Once elected, the Board should immendiately terminate the CEO, CFO and COO and bring in a new leadership team with the capability to lead a profitable company where people actually want to work. But this will never happen, as the CEO now owns a majority of the company and wants nothing to do with a BOD who could actually hold him accountable.

    Work can be really demanding sometimes, you might be required to work over time to fulfill your obligations and deliver before the deadines
