    Overall Handleman was a good company to work for

    Director (Former Employee) Troy, MI

    ProsGood company to work for. The atmosphere was conducive and allowed people to do their best. Great talent at Handleman.

    ConsCorporate strategy was Handleman's demise. Their strategy of being the last people in the distributing physical music (CDs) lead them to bankruptcy. It's a shame because so many talented workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would have been to diversify their company portfolio. Senior management was too interested in their retirement versus doing what was right to change in the industry and to do what was right for their lifelong employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
