Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The people are dedicated and competent

Cons

The management is out of control. One division leadership team would spend time in kareoke bars in China (read up on this in the news to get my point) or other places (direct from2 members of that staff who felt very uncomfortable). Another Senior manager no-bid a consulting contract and then tried to cover up. Senior management had opportunity to sell Nylon division at attractive price but ended up selling at a loss. These guys are only out for themselves

Advice to Management

Hard to give advice to people who lack ethics

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    salaries are on the high end and working conditions were good. There was a good work life balance for most.

    Cons

    With the open floor plan, coworkers could be distracting. The worst part was the complete invisibility of senior leadership. Although they were just down the hall, they very rarely came out of their area to interact with employees. Too hierarchical.

    Advice to Management

    Interact with your employees, it creates an atmosphere of teamwork and makes people feel valued. It takes very little time and little to know resources to improve connectedness and engagement.
