No opinion of CEO

Pros

Employees are very nice and extremely hard working. It's amazing how lean the company runs. Lot's a long hours. Very mixed culturally.

Cons

Communication is lacking. It's on a need to know basis and no one seems to be on the need to know list. There's no management by walking around. Most managers sit in there offices with the door closed all day. Managers do communicate at their level but do not communicate to their staff outside the requisite weekly staff meeting. There is a fear factor amongst the rank and file.

Advice to Management

Communication can go along way. Your staff is working so hard- appreciate it.
