    Pros

    Pay and benefits are above the average for the area. Some employees are very dedicated and loyal. Amazingly, the company still continues to stay in business after much mis-management. So, it will probably continue to stay in business despite its blunders.

    Cons

    Very weak upper management and middle management leadership, poor communication among company direction and future goals, immoral activities of upper management. Upper management fails to have a future plan leading to good financial success. The top leaders are very shortsighted and financially greedy with company money for pet projects which time and time again lead to loss of revenue. Poor planning of new release of products costs the company large sums of money.

    Advice to Management

    They need to execute better busniness plans and communicate the plans to all the employee before lunging forward. TFI needs to learn from past mistakes and not keep making the same ones time and time again. They need to take action against illegal and immoral activities among the managers, which only creates bad attitudes with the working employees. Spending $100,000 on new personal office furniture when company was losing money was plain wrong.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    A lot of scope of personal growth, given complete accountability of work.Two way growth process.

    Cons

    Sometimes becomes a bit overbearing if managers hover over your ideas and dont give space for your creativity and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Give right amount of space to fellows, but also be high on surprise checks to ab=void the lax fellows who perform only when there is a scheduled visit to observe.
