    Pros

    CEO is great.
    Company has (emphasis on has) potential.

    Cons

    - They have people who stifle the growth of the company due to drama and vindictive attitudes towards newer people.

    - There isn't any innovation, and when you try to be innovative they freak out.

    - long/older employees who are there to mark time and don't like change. They've been inventing the wheel for years and years and they hate when you change anything.

    - Absolutely "ZERO" diversity, this is the biggest concern and where their lack of innovation comes from; the main reason why companies fail...no diversity = no creative thinking = Group-think and old ideas/products.

    - Nepotism is starting to creep in...they hangout with each other outside of work...unprofessional and reason why their drama.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the other teams of workers, all you have to do is make everyone take tests on software knowledge and YOU'LL know exactly who you need to LET GO...(i.e. Excel, Powerpoint, Sharepoint, SALESFORCE...)

    I have really great intuition on how to get company's going in the right direction, if you want to survive changes, you need innovative assistants and portfolio managers in addition to charismatic renewal coordinators.

    Just start over, otherwise you'll just have rotten apples poisoning the entire barrel if you don't.

    We agree, there is always an opportunity to learn something new. If you are located in a downtown office, parking is pricey. We try to reduce some of the burden on the associate by covering a portion... More
