    Pros

    Most of the people are amazing, and the new office environment couldn't be better

    Cons

    Too much turnover left a serious knowledge deficit, work life balance can be non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a way to listen to the actual employees, not just what mid level managers want you to hear

    Pros

    CEO has a vision for growth, knows her business and inspires the work force. Plenty of hard workers who want to believe.

    Cons

    Unsettled environment, insecure management, dysfunctional communication. Employees aren't empowered to look for solutions to problems. Lack of trust among managers and officers. Everyone seems to be guarding turf.

    Advice to Management

    Even though everyone is smiling, few are happy. Find out why.

    Pros

    New leadership with a focus on growth through acquisitions which provides opportunities for employees willing to embrace change and personal development. The company is looking for new markets and applications for natural gas. Very comprehensive benefit package with defined pension and 401k.

    Cons

    Extremely lean which translate to significant work demands. Most work weeks are 50 hours plus. For certain positions, salary is lower than industry average.

    Pros

    Very stable company offering unlimited ability to advance and/or grow within the company. They recognized great employees and reward them accordingly.

    Cons

    Work can become monotonous some days and other days it is so crazy busy you can't find time to go to the bathroom.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give so many chances to unproductive employees. If you see someone isn't doing their job or performing it in a sub par way, replace them. I get sick of carrying my load and theirs and also feel like I'm babysitting a grown up.

    Pros

    Good pays, good benefit, nice working environment

    Cons

    Extremely weak management. Management is not held to account while employes are. Employees working directly for management (in offices) are constantly given awards while people who actually move the mail are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Management really needs to communicate with employees and make the workplace more enjoyable.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good people. A very conservative attitude and if you like that then you would love it there.

    Cons

    Low pay, not a lot of chance for advancement. About 10 years behind the curve as far as IT. The company as a whole has a union mentallity.

    Advice to Management

    I would say to keep coming along. There is alot of effort going on to improve things but they are losing good people in the mean time.
