    Pros

    Not much to talk about except that they have summer hours.

    Cons

    Came from a $75m company to a $500m + one .. still very small minded.. people from the smaller days of the company still exist in important positions, holding the company back. Also having a bad year..really bad.. CFO left and I heard 3+ upper and middle management in accounting and finance have also left this year .. Overall, doesn't want to act like a big dog.. work here at your own risk..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think and act like a public company....if people bring in new ideas, understand and embrace them.. don't impose your own ... appreciate what people bring to the table .. promote people for their worth .. not years in service ... don't treat managers like s**t because their reports complain about them..

    Pros

    Eager to get you in and started. Salary was fair, benefits were okay. Some of the co-workers seem eager to help you.

    Cons

    Too much of a "woman's world". In a department of 11, 6 were gone on maternity leave. They don't like outside opinions. I was told that in order to get a head, you would have to put in 12 hour days.. every day. Lunch was suppose to be taken at your desk while you work. Their forecasting is terrible. They don't worry about it, just to "put out the fires." Product is made in China so lead times are months away. They are way to SKU happy. You can have one planner managing 7K-9K SKU's. There is no flex time and their system is very old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are more than one way to do things. Listen to people before you make your decisions. The "people in the trenches" know more than you know.
