    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Stenograph full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Not much, management needs help. No weekend work.

    Cons

    Company stuck in the 1980's. No modern benefits. Huge favoritism amongst management. Unless you're in with the "boys club" you have no chance of promotions. Many upper management needs to retire...now! No new products. Management is indeed hoping for a miracle.

    Advice to Management

    Director level people should retire, get fresh ideas. The reporting industry is dead, find something else company can go.

    Pros

    Most of the senior management has either retired or quit, so that is a plus. Otherwise, most of the pros about this company have slowly disappeared over the last 5 or so years.

    Cons

    It's all about the "bottom line", which means minimal investment in future product and little or no concern about current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes at the top and quit hoping for a miracle in the industry to turn things around. Court reporting is a dying skill and will slowly be replaced by electronic recording...either embrace it or invest in different markets to make up for the losses from the shrinking court reporting market. Leadership with fresh ideas and open minds are whats truly needed.

    Pros

    Introduction to software sales and managing a territory.

    No base pay only a draw, total pay dependent on territory. Still living in 1980's culture.

    Advice to Management

    Start to actually care about your customers and employees, not just lip service.

    Pros

    The people at Stenograph are great, and it's a friendly atmosphere. The staff really cares about the industry, their customers, and about being the industry leader in the court reporting field. In my experience, your input and ideas are listened to and considered.

    Cons

    Upward mobility isn't possible. Upper management has been in in their positions for decades and they aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
