Suggestions for improvement
- Replace the current CEO - he has gutted the company's culture, which was what brought most people to Savage. The company also has a culture of croneyism/nepotism which insulates and promotes incompetent employees and shields them from accountability. Some recent terminations of key managers are also reflective of leadership's willingness to scapegoat people instead of identify and solve problems. The leaders are arrogant and cowardly.
What I like about the company
The company leadership is smart, aggressive and capable of sustaining the company's current growth trajectory
What I dislike about the company
The original culture is gone, thanks to the new CEO and the incredible arrogance of the founders' sons. For most managers, the work demands have steadily increased at the expense of time away from work. The company's earnings are propped up by squeezing more out of the salaried employees and failing to provide the resources needed to reasonably accomplish the company's objectives. The leadership feels that anybody who works for Savage should feel privileged - they are out of touch with the people doing the work. The worst-run division in the company is the corporate office in terms of turnover, low wages and employee dissatisfaction, but the leadership will never discuss it.
