    Company is in financial distress and is unable to pay its suppliers on time.

    1) Unable to provide reasonable lead times on product sales deliverables
    2) Sales and technical services department lacks the technical and industry knowledge
    3) Product quality and workmanship is a major issue, due to the use of inferior parts
    4) Employee morale is terrible, as the management team manages by intimidation
    5) Very few dedicated employees, the majority of new hires are contract status employees

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees with respect.

    Pros

    None - the whole company is run by bullies.

    Cons

    Genmark Automation has no regard for your well being, or your career advancement. They willy nilly hire and fire people with no grounds.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the supply chain materials business & need employment retention programs. Stop hiring people and then letting them go four months later because your company doesn't know how to manage finances. Your company is adversely affecting people self esteem. Not to mention the adverse effects on one's resume. In addition your job requirements are a set up to fail. Very bad manament. They really dont know whats going on
    Internally.
