No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great work/life balance. Most of the people are personable. HR department has "open-door" policy. Environment is fairly relaxed.

Cons

No growth opportunities. Bonuses & raises were taken away for 2 years. In 2011, they resumed...BUT bonuses were (again) taken away from all employees except senior management forever. Flex time is forbidden. Communication of important information is severely lacking.

Advice to Management

Develop better communication skills so the employees know the company they work for. Incorporate flex time to accommodate individuals who have a lengthy commute. Provide more incentives to employees.

    Pros

    The benifits package in my opinion for a small company is outstanding. the company as a whole is very family oriented and has no qualms in giving time off for family matters,wheather you have the time on the books or not as long as you don't take advantage.

    Cons

    The mid level managment is not always the most qualified to perform thier jobs at this company you must have a degree this is not allways bad provided it applies to thier job title. individuals are rarely acknwledged unless you fit into the good old boys club

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of clicks and the lines of friendships that cross the employee / manager lines. beware that the mid level managers may have very limited skills in thier positions they hold and sometimes you have to look wiithin to find the best canidate. treat your employes like thier your most valueuable asset because they are. and you are not union seniority isn't allways the best way to deside who stays or who goes try looking at performance
