        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Paraquad full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        I worked with really great people. In a department that really helped people. The organization started with a great purpose.

        Cons

        The organization is poorly run with drastic cuts of good employees in very necessary departments due to extreme wasteful spending.

        Advice to Management

        Don't destroy the organization with wasteful spending. Max Starkloff would roll over in his grave if he knew what has become of an organization that he worked so hard for.

        I have been working at Paraquad full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Perks: Paid holiday for a week during Christmas Flex schedule.

        Cons

        Lack of communication through out the company. No accountabilities. Lack of management among the supervisor with their staff. No standardization.

        Advice to Management

        Set standardization to follow baseline in all aspect of dept. Setup better procedures and guidelines for staffs and visitors to use. Better communication with staffs and dept managers is needed.
