Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Wonderful co-workers. Commitment to community giving. Working toward going green. Shares in the cost of bus passes. Decent health benefits. Have passes to OMSI, zoo, etc available to employees.

Cons

Better hire on with a good salary, because you won't be getting any raises. unrealistic work loads mean long hours. Management makes decisions with no clear understanding of our deliverables, resulting in service failures. Outdated systems,

Advice to Management

Acknowledge that your front line employees might have some good insight as to what works and what doesn't, and provided a meaningful and safe environment for discussion (skip meetings that do not include middle management). Invest in your people, and they will invest in you. Every employee who works (unpaid) overtime to assure that the work is completed, is showing a level of commitment to The Standard that to date, has not returned.
