    CFO/COO Toxic

    Pros

    The Employee Base is fantastic - great group of people

    Cons

    When will the Board of Directors and other Senior Management realize that the problem is in their own ranks. The CFO/COO is out of control. In the span of a month he has driven out key members of his staff. Well respected and liked employees. This doesn't include all the other employees he has managed to run off. The CFO/COO is a classic narcissist. He grabs all the glory and is quick to throw people under the bus. His reign of terror needs to stop. Everyone is so tense and on pins and needles with this guy. Makes everyone wonder if this isn't being secretly condoned by those in charge.

    Pros

    Good work, very safe as far as awareness training and knowledge training. Good opportunity for growth with patience. Good benefits (health care, hsa, eye, dental, 401k). Lots of overtime potential. Good crews.

    Cons

    The sales pitch of being a family business doesn’t feel genuine. It’s production based. Mandatory overtime to meet production numbers. Overly sensitive, lots of red tape and lots of politics. High turn overrate. Raises come slowly 3% yearly, advice : keep applying for new positions within the company.
