Approves of CEO

Pros

Great pay and the people are genuinely nice and supportive.

Cons

The work can get very boring very fast. I mean, it's plastics. How exciting can that get? Something needs to be done to alleviate the monotony.

Advice to Management

Take a more vested interest in the mental and emotional health of your employees. Sometimes the mind cannot handle another minute of staring at a computer and that should be seen as normal and ok.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Initiative is rewarded and encouraged
    -Definitely no feeling of excess in the company - they run a very lean operation
    -Good balance of managers and senior non-managers
    -Great place to learn how to cut costs

    Cons

    -treatment of and reliance upon contractors is appalling
    -VIP/non-VIP class division is disturbingly overt
    -If you would not fit into a desired mold as an employee, there is no hope of being hired permanently
    -corporate culture is very closed

    Advice to Management

    Hire some of your contractors, or at least pay them better. There will come a point at which cutting staff to the bone and maintaining a frozen corporate mentality will diminish morale and scare away talent.
