Pros

I joined Pegasus when the two companies, Universal ENSCO and Pegasus International, were still separate entities. Pegasus was a very employee friendly company; the bosses were very concerned with the well being of its employees. It was like working in a family. Then, over the course of the last two years, merger talks were held under the auspices of an outside investor, systems were unified, departments streamlined and the two were made as one, except that...

Cons

... from the point of view of the employees, things have changed a lot. The relation between bosses and employees have not been the same, especially after some of the old time management people left. Departments where the old leaders are still there seem to maintain their old relationships, but where managers have changed the atmosphere has turned a bit uneasy. Things will probably settle down after a while, but for the time being... not every one is loving the change!

Advice to Management

- Improve communications between different "divisions" of the company. The offshore people do not seem to know that there are opportunities in the onshore group they might be interested in. The onshore doesn't bother to advertise their projects to the other groups. The international group is oblivious to what is happening in the other areas.
- Be honest in communicating expectations; do not say that there is bright outlook for next year and then turn around and let old timers go. This makes the employees feel uneasy.
