    A lot of change, not always for the best

    I have been working at Fry

    Pros

    This used to be a great place to be, but now that it has merged with MICROS there is a lack of strategy and communication internally. There are a lot of questions and not a lot of answers and unfortunately that has resulted in a lot of turnover. They are starting to figure things out, but not quick enough.

    Cons

    Lack of strategy sharing with staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the staff and share more. Recognize contributions.

    Pros

    The people who work at Fry are extremely dedicated. The community is very close-knit and everyone is quite willing to help out where they can. Like any company, there are difficulties between departments, but those difficulties could usually be resolved by approaching the other department and addressing their issues.

    Cons

    The company that bought Fry (MICROS, Inc) didn't have a clue what they were buying. They took a company, with a well known name who was competing with the "big boys", and dragged Fry's name through the mud. Their lack of understanding when it came to e-commerce and how it applied in the space was so severely blinded that they only succeeded in making half the workforce leave in Q4 2010.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the employees and what makes the company great. Look at the atmosphere and don't try to change everything to match some corporate ideology. Learn why individuals are leaving the company and try to stem the flow of dissatisfied employees rather than tell them "...if you don't like it here, find somewhere else to work - we don't need you" or "you should be happy to have a job".
