    I have been working at New Options Sports full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company makes great products for our veterns, people with sports injuries and post op. They are a manufacturer of neoprene and koolflex braces for wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, shoulders, lumbars, groin area, etc. They also make products for orthotics and to help people that wear prosthetics. I am very proud of what we do for the military and everything is Made In America right here in Dallas, TX.

    Cons

    Small company with major stock owner that is old management style of running a business and feel they are holding the company back by not acting on decisions that need to be made.

    Advice to Management

    Make the changes that need to be done in the sales department. Allow the hiring and development of the 2 areas we have grown to need. Back your other owners/partners when you tell them you want something handled and not go behind them and undo what is done.

    I have been working at New Options Sports full-time

    Pros

    Great work flexibility, lots of good people, low turnover.

    Cons

    No meaningful leadership which creates stress on the front lines. Lacking in accountability across the whole organization.

    Advice to Management

    You can maintain a good relationship with your customers without letting them make your business decisions.

    I worked at New Options Sports full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some real nice folks work here. Excellent facility and working conditions

    Cons

    In a commodity business, with no product differentiation from its competitors it survives only with an expiring VA contract. Moreover without a (sales) distribution network and an unwillingness to invest in R&D it is questionable if company will survive.

    Advice to Management

    Owner needs to sell before it loses all it's value. He has lost touch of the market and has no business acumen. He will not spend the necessary funds to grow the business. Doesn't understand the need to invest in his people. It's a hobby for the owner, something to do. There is no company mission, no performance objectives, no budget, no clue!
