  1. "Fair Place to work if you are OK with long house as standard"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great people, strong team mentality, varied job duties, strong local leadership

    Cons

    long hours, antiquated information/financial management systems, lots of reporting, 'fire-fighter' mentality rather than proactive actions

    Advice to Management

    keep streamlining reporting duties, and please stop releasing new systems mid-year. It's like changing horses mid-full-gallop- it's adds unnecessary complexity, work-load and stress. With the nature of the work, January-February are down-times, why not take advantage of it!


  2. "Can be a good place to work, but very political."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, bonuses, some good quality people. You are provided all the tools you need to do your job. Good work environment.

    Cons

    Very political. You have to be a schmoozer to advance. Some people in management and leadership positions have no business being there, and it's hurting the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people that have stuck with you during good and bad times. Give more credit for people who give you good results and see the big picture, as opposed to having robots who just folllow procedures.
