    I worked at McKinstry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New, key leaders are bringing the company from a stodgy “mom & pop” operation to a high performing, profitable enterprise. Significant market opportunity to grow in many area. Excellent work life balance, company culture and people who actually care about there work. Lots of opportunities for high performers...

    Cons

    Still remains pockets of old-school, “this is how we have always done it” ... Opportunities for advancement highly depend on which group you are part of... Lack of accountability to poor performance still a problems in some areas (although it is being addressed).

    Advice to Management

    Stay committed to changes underway

    Pros

    If you fit in the clicks you will do great.

    Cons

    There is an accepted culture of bullying that is dismissed. Very similar to high school.

    Advice to Management

    I do not believe I can offer advice that the owner does not already know regardless of what it stated in the orientation process. It would be good to inform all previous and current customers and employees in regards to breeches in private information and the recent Ransomware attack.
