Workers are Great but Some Managers Need to be Open and Honest
A Day in the Life of a Worker at Burford Corp (Former Employee) – Maysville – April 21, 2014
Great bunch of people to have as coworkers. Loads of helpful employees and staff. The most enjoyable and hardest part of the job is coming in to work and looking forward to challenges presented daily. Their CEO is a very approachable person and is constantly visible. The engineering staff are a wealth of knowledge as well as down to earth.
But like everywhere else, there are good managers and ones that are not so... As for management, there a few who are cut and dry and those who are not. A word of advice for certain managers. Do not make any deals with the intention of not keeping them. Be frank and forthright. And more importantly, get out from your desks and see what your workers are doing. (This applies to those who are out in the field.) Also, if you're wanting feedback on a new hire, ask from everyone who has personally worked with them. Not based your own biased opinions. A good leader looks at a follower from all sides and not just from one perspective. Simple observations can also help with performance. Lastly, give your new hires a feedback performance of some sort and have it written down. That way, the employee knows where they stand on improving performance or leaving things the way they are. This will do service to both the manager and the worker and less time wasted in keeping or terminating the probationary employee.
There are a lot of great people who work there
Some Managers only managing and not leading. Loads of favortism in a few departments
