Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to the rank and file if you want to stay in business. Better yet, sell if at all possible! Sell the Company, piece by piece if necessary. There is still some niche expertise that has value.

I like about the employer

HR seemed to try hard, good Company line on Safety

I dislike about the employer

Management doesn't know what they want the Company to be.
Expectations and business plans are unrealistic.
"Old Boy" network in management; many should have been run off long ago. Management does obtuse things - spends millions on a "project reporting and controls system" that can't generate useful reports, undertakes repeated projects that are "sold" without the slightest chance of being achievable for the projected budget, puts all of eggs in one industry basket, spends nothing on Customer development or Customer retention. At the same time, lost ISO 9000 certification due to not spending the money to keep up the processes.
Part of world wide operations operate as business/industry business lines; part operate as Regional. Regional structure is typically used to bring a profitable regional business line under the portfolio of a favored manager that has a losing industry business, so he (all are "he's") look good.
Very little coordination between world-wide offices; almost all work is done in the office where it was originated; no work sharing or worse - no expertise sharing.
