    Pros

    Employees remain hopeful that through the new CFO ,a Reorganization is underway. Hopefully employees remain encouraged that the operation will be streamlined restoring our profitability. Employees remain hopeful excess overhead supporting the CEO's personal agenda with her staffing, personal perks, etc will bring this 130 year old company back. An independent evaluation on Mexico will enlightened our management team and owners. Exited about this endeavor. The Company may regain its profitability. There is known waste in the organization due to staffing, duplicate roles, intra-divisional redundancy in assignments, and protection of unqualified staff hired by the President. Employees are looking forward to this reorganization. There is strong loyalty among factory workers. At times throughout the year good solid training takes place.

    Cons

    The CEIO has a strong ego that drives and divides the Company. Employees question integrity becomes of the pursuit of negative, unfair agendas. She renders independent decisions against the advice of her direct reports causing disjointed goals, directives, etc. . Decisions that have caused loss of Sales and profit. Bad decisions include loosing millions to Mexico because of their high overhead, the unprofitable China operation , staffing for product lines that never surfaced into existence, loosing millions to poor hiring of friends and the harsh judgements extended to staff if they disagree with her or a personal mission which is fueled by revenge if based upon her likes and dislikes-100 percent subjective.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoritism, develop s sense of integrity , and stop
    making awards your priority. Stop asking staff to do personal things on business time. Instead of self-promotion, elevate your staff and the company to its mission. CEO needs to examine her career. At Hope. CEO should stop evaluating people using sarcasm and a hired agenda. Return the Company to a family atmosphere, objectivity, integrity and profitability

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hope Global (Cumberland, RI (US)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    My interviewers at Hope Global were very helpful and informative. I was abroad at the time so I couldn't go into the physical location, but they were very accommodating with setting up a Skype interview. They were very genuine. There was a balance of questions and informing me on what the position would entail. Sometimes the connection would give out, but they didn't let that interfere with the interview flow.
