Pros

Co workers are great. Commercial product is excellent.

Cons

Not progressive. Feedback that can be helpful is almost non-existent. Back channel decision making among old guard causes issues for others.

Advice to Management

Strategy is more than just product and service. It's also about your operational opportunities and people development.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and benefits. They treat the employees well and the people are great to work with. They run a very organized business and are receptive to ideas for improvements and efficiencies. Many great training opportunities. Overall, the only company I would work for again. I wish I had never left.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted because no one leaves. Wish there had been the option for lateral moves to get more diverse busines exposure.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, was impressed with management and leadership. There was a lot of focus on developing employees and giving the skill sets needed to be good leaders in the organization.

    Pros

    Very easy on employees
    Wonderful career development opportunities
    Good location - close to major metro area and airport
    Great products - respected brand

    Cons

    Poor performers not held accountable
    Decisions are too long in the making - slow and plodding
    Way too many meetings - when do you get work done?

    Advice to Management

    To be a high performing company, you need high performing teams. Trust your business leaders to get the job done. Set the parameters, give clear compelling goals, and let them do what they were hired to do. But, hold them accountable for reaching their goals. Clear, concise, accountability.
