    I have been working at United Natural full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable company. They are changing some departments around so I think it will be better organized in the near future.

    Cons

    Some departments are overworked and the lower managers that have been around too long need to learn some skill so they can motivate their staff and make it a positive environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To many of the managers, but NOT all of them - smile once in a while and act like you care about your 'team'.
