    I worked at Parkson Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Privately owned, so have the flexibility to try new things. Owner extremely dedicated to company and environmental issues. Owner committed to supplying the necessary capital requested by upper management to grow the company.

    Cons

    High employee turn over rate. Many reorganizations. Hire a lot of executives that are not familiar with the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it a point to compliment employees on their strengths and accomplishments, rather than just criticizing them for mistakes. Allow more opinions from field service and outside sales on the directions the company should be heading.

    Former Employee - Product Manager  in  Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Former Employee - Product Manager in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    I worked at Parkson Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very family oriented business that treats its employees very ethically and fairly.

    Cons

    Limited or inconsistent chance for advancement where more responsibility is not always rewarded. Lots of personnel turnover in the past few years - most with little positive effect.
    The biggest challenge is that the company's technology portfolio doesn't really offer a clear future for the company or its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to expand its technologies to create more opportunities for its future and that of its employees. The company also needs to be more consistent in accepting and following through on the bringing new ideas into the company.

    good people to work with and an excellent atmosphere. the place has alot to offer as far as potential growth and promotion.

    in some ways the outline of duties is somewhat vague. it would be better to have more deadline dates and a structured view of what the potential is that they intend for you to become within the company to strive for.

    Pros

    Open communciation between upper management and other employees

    Cons

    Uncertain of company real performance and issues. Sometimes the actions do not reflect what the reports show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees know if things are not working so well and what are the actions that will be taken to manage these issues. Have a better communication between employees when hiring and letting someone go the company. Communication about any moves of employee can affect considerably the activities of their peers.
