    Approves of CEO

    I worked at The Richards Group full-time

    Pros

    Reputation, central location, some very good and talented people

    Cons

    Very political, not an arena in which you feel open to express dissenting opinions or even any opinions, if an intern
    Silos, not much sharing amongst coworkers
    Terrible feeling of distrust, especially when one is tracked to see when you have arrived in the morning (have to punch in right at 8:30 am and punch out), time sheets due every day or there is a fine, etc.
    Oppressive corporate culture

    Advice to Management

    Stive to create a more open, flexible, and relaxed--it fosters creativity
    Train interns, take a special interest in them, they may be the employees or clients of the future
    Take constructive criticism and make changes, make people comfortable with sharing their views, whether they are conforming to the status-quo of the company or not
    Hispanic agency Richards/Lerma needs more native Hispanics and speakers--there is a level of understanding about the Latino culture that is more readily reached if you have more native Spanish speakers and Hispanic/Latino employees
