No opinion of CEO

Pros

Very good people to work with. The engineers and support staff is second to none. The engineers know a lot and will share with you their experiences.

Cons

It is a sink or swim type of place. You need to able to perform and learn quickly or you won't last after they throw you in the deep end. They have a reputation in the area as a place that goes through a fair amount of people.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and play to their strengths. Make sure that you don't overload your employees and then wonder what happened.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The middle management team is dedicated, hard-working and passionate about growing the business, supporting the team members, and taking care of the customers.

    Cons

    The current senior management team has no clue on how to run a business by motivating employees and winning and retaining customers.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about your team members, suppliers and customers, and show them how partnerships really work. Spend less time in the ivory tower and more time out on the production floor and with the customers.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The on-the-job experience is good for a first time job out of college to gain experience. The location is good because it is close to the highway between Neenah and Oshkosh. We were cramped in the old building but moved into a new building. The new building puts most people in cubes in a small area.

    Cons

    It is definately an old-boy network there because they do not promote from within. There is as an obvious conflict of interest when the President of the Board is a past owner and CEO. Money is spent without long-term goals, but personal top level mgt gain in mind - ie re-purchase company stock to increase $$ and perks for mgt. It's clear mgt are not strong in business skills and strategy. The board allows this and does not ask questions to hold mgt accountable. Stock values falls and no one asks the questions to keep company going.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to have top mgt with clear business strategy skills to keep the company from failing or relying on one major contract to keep the bottom line numbers looking good to outsiders. The company should promote within company.
