Pros

Good colleagues. Conscientious people. Interesting product.

Cons

Salaried turnover was incredibly high. The answer to every problem was that people were not working hard enough or long enough hours. President was a classic micro-manager. Very little trust up or down the chain. People considered expendible.

Advice to Management

Stop treating your people like slaves.

    "Owner is a slave-driver, benefits stink, dirt-cheap labor flown in from India to keep costs down."

    Pros

    Interesting industry, mostly hard-working employees.

    Cons

    Owner is a tyrant, labor is seen as expendable, leadership is not trained (good leadership is not validated by the president), wages are undercut by staff direct from India who will work for nothing and get quartered all together.

    Advice to Management

    THIS IS NOT INDIA! Clean up your act, stop protecting lousy workers who are your friends. stop shipping in foreign labor then lying to american applicants about jobs being filled. learn that people don't work 24-7. be fair. be honest. give decent benefits. That place needs to unionize.
