Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Location is great for employees living on the south shore.

Cons

Extremely uncomfortable day-to-day environment with looming layoffs and possible buyout rumors running rampant. Upper management lives on a planet of 'it's all about me and what I can get' and gives little to no respect to underlings. Hard to get a "hello/good morning" in the hallways from just about anyone in any type of management roll. Pathetic.

Advice to Management

Treat people in the manner in which you would like to be treated. Get out of your office (or actually come in to the office for a change) and interact with the people doing the grunt work as they are the ones actually getting things done.

    competitive wages
    great heritage of company brand name

    Cons

    alot of political favorings like many companies, play a lot of favorites
    company in a very unstable time right now, lots of layoffs,shaky from corporate
    constant changes of schedule, hard to balance with personal life
    unclear directions coming down from top, very unrealistic for resources given
    constant change of expectations of jobs

    Advice to Management

    Have a very good staff for the most part, show more apprecitation of that in a sincere way.
    Tone of reviews and corrective actions given to people often very harsh and done publicly, while others do the same activities with little said. More advace planning needed to make directions happen in a smooth way, be more realistic in demands given. Offer better incentives to those who do perform.
