    in some ways the outline of duties is somewhat vague. it would be better to have more deadline dates and a structured view of what the potential is that they intend for you to become within the company to strive for.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you're an individual who enjoys "wearing many hats" and gaining the experience in different roles, this is the place for you. Be careful though, as you may apply for one position, but over the time you work there they "reorganize" the company FIVE times only to find yourself being expected to efficiently perform in three different positions. Due to large layoffs and large amounts of people leaving the company willingly, the amount of staff to handle the workload is not sustainable. Be prepared to be "burnt out" quickly.

    Cons

    Job security. it is always in questioning who the next group of people will be to get laid-off.

    Pros

    Parkson is great at promoting from within. Work/life balance is great with many of the employees are very friendly. The work is great and you learn a lot. The Florida office is nice.

    Cons

    There is no real training for new hires, just shadowing a senior employee and try to catch as soon as possible. There is a large gap between senior employees and newly hired. High employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on being an environmental engineering company for the long term. Develop your products properly and bring back R&D. Connect with employees, be visible to them.

    Pros

    Privately owned, so have the flexibility to try new things. Owner extremely dedicated to company and environmental issues. Owner committed to supplying the necessary capital requested by upper management to grow the company.

    Cons

    High employee turn over rate. Many reorganizations. Hire a lot of executives that are not familiar with the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a point to compliment employees on their strengths and accomplishments, rather than just criticizing them for mistakes. Allow more opinions from field service and outside sales on the directions the company should be heading.
