Disapproves of CEO

Pros

They are very slow to let people go when the work slows down. Laid back environment and not demanding. Easy to work at, very slow pace.

Cons

No room for advancement if that is what you wnat. The word overtime is a sin. The benefits package is sketchy and no one tells you the rules unless you break them. Absolutely no out of the box thinking is allowed. If you are ready to pack it in this is the place.

Advice to Management

Move into this milenia, adopt a real work process. Have employees anonymouslly review the managment. After all this is an employee owned company the employees should have a voice other that their voting of the board.

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    I worked on many interesting projects. My branch office had a professional yet friendly environment. I had several opportunities for regional travel.

    Cons

    Corporate HQ very slow to approve or update computer hardware and software resources. Project management system software was overly complex. Branch office rivalries led to lost marketing and project opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    See "Cons" above per technology needs. Branch offices I dealt with tended to be parochial in outlook and competitive within firm. Lack of coordination led to lost business.
