    "There always seemed to be potential for growth and success, but in the end the company got it its own way of progress."

    Pros

    Good salary; casual, sociable work environment - made lots of good friends there. Diversity of projects. Most of the department heads were good people to work for.

    Cons

    Management never learned from any mistakes, and they never put people in positions to succeed; but rather repeatedly put people in the wrong roles, and didn't give the right people opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership at Maguire group is really no longer - now that Metric in Miami bought Maguire. As far as the leadership at Metric - try learning a few things about the actual business that Maguire operates (A/E), and the region they operate in. Oh, and another big one - the more you nickel and dime your employees and tighten the grip, the more they are apt to get frustrated and "take." On the other hand, the more you treat employees with respect and the more leeway you give them, the more you will get out of them, because they want to "give" back to the company. Hence you grow and become successful Groundbreaking stuff here.
