    I worked at Creative Realities full-time

    Pros

    - Some positions can be well paid (sales)
    - Some flexible hours
    - Variety of work

    Cons

    - Departments do not work together
    - Never learn from mistakes, only focus on blame
    - Too many managers
    - Surprise overtime

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their job. You hire them because they are trained professionals. Belittling and micromanaging only makes them loose pride in their work.

    Pros

    WAS A "NO PRESSURE" JOB

    Cons

    NJ office was closed but there wasn't any structure. New CEO took over from KY and office was moved there. He was a nice guy and very good to employees. He gave the co the shot in the arm that it needed.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO, Rick Mills, doesn't need any advice; he "gets" it.

    Pros

    Flexibility, building strong relationships, inspiring innovation
    The CEO is transparent in his direction for the company and persistent in seeing the company succeed. Upper management are personable. Coworkers are nice and work to meet the needs of our customers -- consistently and efficiently.

    Cons

    The company is spread out so it is hard to meet everyone in the other locations but everyone is encouraged to communicate with each other.
    The salaries could be a bit better but I understand it can take time.
