    A lot of gossiping
    Politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should try to promote within and train for advancement.
    Don't act like the problems do exist , address them before reviews if at all.

    Pros

    there are no pros to working here

    Cons

    There is no support from management. Everything is looked over and nothing happens. Managers hold a do what is say not as I do attitude. Very disappointing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider supporting the people who keep you in business. Shame on you for doing nothing when things are so very wrong

    Pros

    Two people I work with are good at their jobs and nice people.

    Cons

    Too many to list here, most of the management needs to be retrained or go back to school. Its like going to high school if you're not in the click you're not going to be scheduled very much. The manage hired her mother, her dads best friend, her brothers girlfriend, and lots of her friends so if any one of them does something very wrong you have no one to tell and the general manager let this happen even though it is against company policy.

    Pros

    Good group of people to work with, kind and caring, upper management always gives credit where it's due. Have the ability to telecommute if needed.

    Cons

    No growth opportunity for me. Many areas lack structure. Standards, guidelines and processes aren't implemented in some areas which I found odd being that the company has been around for so long. Too old to still be dealing with growing pains.

    Lack of Color in Upper-Management

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing! Compensation is average.

    Cons

    There is constant lack of color in upper-management and there appears to be no hope of changing this concept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity is imperative in any company. Upper diversity is needed to truly experience growth. Recognition of education and hard work should outweigh friendship when reviewing applications.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good core values of the company

    Cons

    None of those values were executed at my location. Despite having never worked in the industry before (which I was told they liked) provided with zero training and just thrown into the job. Orientation was sitting with a temp for 2 days. Complete lack of communication between management and staff.

    Pros

    The people regular employees that work there are amazing, the benefits.

    Cons

    Values and training about it are not apply it is just a waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involve with your HR department because their lack of professionalism and the way that they use personal judgment to handle any situation make employees do not trust in the company values.
