    Pros

    Lower level people still care but management is trying hard to demoralize everyone

    Cons

    The title is getting into people’s head at the senior management level. People who are promoted at the director and sr. Director level positions often lack proper training and some do not have the required education. Cost cutting is the ultimate goal to increase bonus payouts. No focus or vision. Zero loyalty and the employees are forced to not care because of poor upper management at the director and sr.... Director levels and even higher. Directors and sr. Directors are often trying to keep their job and aim to please their manager by over promising and under delivering.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing your employees a little more and stop the dictatorship approach of either like it or leave. Develop a vision for products and innovation. Stop sending all of your jobs to overseas at the expense of increasing profits and bonuses. The reason you are here is because of the people who have contributed to your success. You cut throat approach is viewed as such by the employees and you are forcing the... employees to stop caring. Put the human in Human Resources as HR is non existent at NEC. May be the title should change to Insurance Services because that is all they do besides firing paperwork and useless ethics online courses that are obsolete.
