    I worked at Performance Machine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brand known for cool products years ago.

    Cons

    President and friendly directors do not have a clue on strategy. Decisions always based on emotion without any logic; decisions constantly changed and then changed back.
    They only have PM experience, no idea on how to improve or evolve.

    Advice to Management

    N/A - advice will not work

    Pros

    the product industry is cool

    Cons

    no training, long hours, clicky, if ur not part of the "inner circle" don't waste your time here...talked about wanting change but they don't...rules for employees don't apply to management (sands family and friends)...saw a lot of good people with good skills and work ethic get stressed to the point of illness...too much drama

    Advice to Management

    start with a fresh group of management

    I worked at Performance Machine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Industry pretty good to work in.

    Cons

    If not in the "click" very hard to break into progressive, true process improvement to support customer requirements. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. Manage by actual performance vs managing people through other peoples perceptions.
