Negative Outlook

I worked at Tradelogic full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-Operations run smoothly without management being directly involved
-Headquarters in beautiful Austin, TX
-Job security?

Cons

-Executive decisions without regard for concensus
-Poor communication
-Missing pay checks
-Hostile work environment
-Micro management
-Relying on past success to estimate future success in uncharted waters
-Nepotism
-Poorly documented or undocumented operations
-Lack of authority regarding prioritization
-Workplace performance issues are handled in an informal or unprofessional manner (verbally with no supporting evidence, in passing, water-cooler talk, etc)

Advice to Management

-Listen to your employees; you pay them for their time, not to run on a script
-Stop hovering over the shoulders of your employees; if you can't trust them to work, why hire them at all?
-Actually read your email; self-explanatory
-Stop communicating everything via telephone regarding issues; it is impossible to keep everyone on the same page and there is no record, or maybe you don't want to keep a record
-Use the issue tracking system that is in place; want to know what people are working on? Use your available tools

    I worked at Tradelogic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have absolutely nothing positive to say about this company.

    Cons

    As soon as I walked in on my first day I knew I messed up by accepting the job. I tried giving things a chance, but after 8 weeks of floundering to help make money for a failing company, I moved on. I did not receive one ounce of training and was expected to just figure things out on my own without any support from management or the owners. The owner is a micro-manager but is never around so getting the most basic questions answered would take weeks. Each restaurant has such a horrible reputation in town that when I told my other event planner friends about my new job they were all embarrassed for me. My husband ate at Abel's on the Lake on time and still says to this day how it was the worst food he has ever eaten at a restaurant.
    At least twice while I was there they had auditors in from the Texas Workforce Commission. It soon made sense to me because after I left I was never paid my final paycheck. After months of emails to multiple managers and the owner himself, Ellis finally sent me a pathetic email asking me "what makes you think you deserve to get paid?" What a joke of a human being.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees the money they worked for. I now work for an incredible event planning firm and I will NEVER send any business your way. This company is a joke.
