No opinion of CEO

Pros

A paycheck, and decent benefits. Not much else.

Cons

You will treated like a piece of furniture, if you're lucky, and unless you're an engineer or developer, seen as completely expendable.

Advice to Management

The current president of the company is lost and has no idea how to turn this company around. He even has admitted, to a room full of people, that he's not a "numbers person" and the financial aspect means nothing to him. This may help to explain the recent rash of layoffs. The total lack of communication and the attitude that the employees should just be happy to be employed will be just two of the reasons this company will continue on their downward spiral.

    slow to respond, small buisiness units not dynamic - too much red tape, fear of breaking the mould

    Advice to Management

    Stop the SMT 'be all and end all' mentality, it's old fashioned. Stop strangling the business. You preach LEAP.....practice it!!!!

    Pros

    Good place to pick up skills and learn your trade. Company keeps employees well informed so does help boost moral good employee management communications.

    Cons

    Salaries are on the lower side of the industry average. Not much internal promotion, high staff turnover. Emplyees tend to stagnate a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally rather than hiring from outside. Keeps moraal high and stops the high staff turnover. Invest in internal employees for promotion.
