    Pros

    Great work life balance, and flexible schedule. People are nice and friendly.

    There isn't any incentive to go the extra mile. Employees are promoted based on senority.

    Management needs to raise expectations, standards and have clear communication with employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    * People (the pee-ons) are generally nice
    * Decent benefits

    Cons

    * No innovation
    * Conservative
    * Lack of creativity
    * Workload is unmanageable due to lazy Directors that lacks leadership skills
    * Lack of autonomy and trust; management rather hear recommendations from expensive consultants/vendors than own employees
    * Field sales driven rather than customer driven
    * Internal conflicts between management

    Advice to Management

    Instead of laying off people that actually do the work, maybe the execs ought to get rid of some of the lazy sr. management and directors.

    Board of Directors should be ashamed of themselves for driving the company to the ground.
