Disapproves of CEO

Pros

A lot of vacation days, sick leave, and holidays.

Cons

HIghly political work environment, little recognition nor reward for hard work, poor upper management, highly disorganized, and basically ineffective. As the results speak for themselves in 2009.

Advice to Management

Should spend more time reviewing viable and effective strategies rather than playing politics. Also, there should be greater control over internal growth, which occurred too quickly and resulted in a highly disorganized structure.

    Great benefits package for part-time and full-time employees. Compensation is more than fair compared to similar companies. Expectations are very clear and regular feedback is given on performance. A job well-done is always acknowledged.

    Cons

    Client traffic is not always well-directed, which leads to frustrated clients and employees. Suggestions on how to improve processes are not always heard.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you employees. Listen to your clients. Adapt to the needs of the people. Enable employees to improve their performance.
