Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Pay and benefits are good

Cons

Try to promote employees who are not ready for it. Keeps people around based on their time with company regardless of their education and competancy.

Advice to Management

Just because a person hasn't been with the company very long, doesn't mean they don't have what it takes to make some good things happen. Stop trying to keep old-hatters around based on time-vested. Bring in new blood and see what they got.

    Pros

    The company culture was fun as the employees in my department woudl often get treats and have fun at the company parties. When times were good, the place booming and the staff was very happy. Now that times are tough, it's not such a jovial environment

    Cons

    The pay is qutie a bit lower than other companies. They seem to be not the most amibitious of people who work there.

    Advice to Management

    I would say they need to hire better talent that can take the company to where it needs to go. They need to diversify the customer base a lot more as the current economy is killing this company.


  2. "UFP"
