    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Polartec LLC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were GREAT. Andy V. has left. Due to recent changes in upper management, many have left or were dismissed. Career advancement seems non existent....

    Cons

    "My way or the highway" has taken precedent. New CEO has created an atmosphere of fear and stress. Very unreasonable and lack of respect for employees. Creativity and R&D are now the responsibility of the customer, removing the ingenuity and innovation that made the company great.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the experience and knowledge of employees. Treat them like an individual, not an expense.....
