    Good concept to co-locate a regional warehouse with strategic teams (Installation, Engineering, Project Management

    Top heavy influence from corporate team, who were not in touch with the pulse of the employees.

    It would have been a good thing to get out and away from the corporate offices and listen to your work force.

    Pros

    Really good place to work, great people and relaxed worked environment. Benefits package better than other companies.

    Company will make changes without informing employees of changes until after the fact. Communication between upper management and the rest of the workforce is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your work force, they are the ones that meet customers daily and keep the company moving forward.
