Pros

Workers dedicated to putting out quality product. Folks generally work together as a team.

Good pay and benefits

Good facilities, especially Slidell administration building

Cons

Management was not proactive enough during salad days to prepare for future. Now they are playing catch-up, struggling to compete with more established competitors for future contracts.

Insufficient and late investment in technical tools to enable employees to do their jobs more efficiently and with less error.

HR is often an impediment to attracting and keeping talent. HR recently mishandled an opportunity to move a key employee to satellite office near the customer.

Some middle-level managers have lousy people skills, or are unqualified to manage much of anything.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The division I worked in (E-Z-GO) was great at driving change and engaging employees; leadership shares a lot of information with employees.

    Cons

    Leadership was hesitant to say "no" to any project from parent company - resulted in very heavy workload for some employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Happy with progression of career and pay. Good people and usually interesting work. Company allows flexible work schedule for busy families.

    Cons

    Weak to OK management, work can be schedule driven. Some long work days that could be avoided with better planning. Vision and where the company is going is unclear. The company could more diverse and invest in new technology to advance products.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce mangement too many people telling other what needs to happen.
