No opinion of CEO

Pros

I cannot say this about every team on site, but the team I work with is great. They show great teamwork and communication skills. They have been out here a long time and know what they are doing.

Cons

The company is very understaffed and underpaid. This company does not pay their salaried employees over time if they come in on the weekends, unlike the company down the road.

Advice to Management

If you want your employees to be happy and stay at the job they are doing, then have the right amount of staff and pay them what the competition is paying their employees.

    Managers make it a point to learn about your current work.

    No flexibility in work schedule. A lot of good ideas go unheard about future opportunities. Employees do not think movement through the company is available.

    Better understanding of the employees future goals. Create a more challenging environment for employees. Alot time for more intercompany interaction.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good work/life balance. Nice building and offices. Nice people. Central downtown location. Nice celebration/holiday events for employees.

    Cons

    Very political, like many large public companies. Very strong resistence to change and very weak management support for change. Managers say all the right things, but do not back them up with behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better support, coaching, interaction with non-management employees. Lead by EXAMPLE. Improve skills at prioritizing goals; everything cannot be a #1 priority.
