Product side of business not valued, consulting side is paramount.
Business Development (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – February 27, 2012
CEO of the company runs it with an iron fist, micro manages everything from acquisitions to trinkets for trade shows. Zero delegation of authority to managers and VPs. Values consulting side of the business; values people with same ethnicity.
Product side of the business makes money and has a talented staff, top management on that side is sharp. Innovative products, great part of the company to work for, yet not as valued as the consulting side.
A lot of turn over in the company including top management. Marketing area has had high turnover in the last five years.
No severence given to anyone- top VPs to staff are given two weeks if position is eliminated. Negotiate a separation package in advance of employment. Consulting side of the business is highly valued, best place to be in the company at this time.
4 1/2 day work schedule, nice office space, established brand in the business.
micro managing, little job security from hourly to vp level, walk-on-eggshells culture.
