    Responsible for all national mass retail

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Flexibliity, Long term product management developed killer products. Central service staff is very loyal and saves lots of issues for senior mgmt. Use to pay very well for high end efforts and performance, very questionable now.
    Most of the staff is friendly, but senior management style incubates a shifting blame game that makes everyone on edge and nervous,

    ConsVery poor communication, No one at the top with Decisive leadership, Senior management wildly vacillate from total hand off, until 3rd quarter, then micromanage's and blindsides staff till the enf of the 4th quarter.. President doesn't even know if is doing this to employess.Very poor proactive skills, Chairman is very weak with clients and has no depth, experience, or skill set in work with national major retail landscape. No pre testing of any products. Senior management does not managing or focus on operational details which could save major headaches.
    VP never returns sales reps calls, and most customers tend, now, to only tolerate the operations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell out to real CPG firm that really offer expertise in the business. This company is held back by the senior team and will remain so until they either get substantive C-suite leadership coaching, or move themselves out of the way. They are way over their heads.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
