    I worked at Bush Brothers full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent compensation and bonus, family atmosphere, market leader for their category, smart and hardworking colleagues, company pride.

    Cons

    Endless meetings, no decision is made without excessive collaboration, some middle management shows limited flexibility or openness to new ideas, in HQ work/life balance is an issue, flat organization so nowhere to grow vertically, way too much emphasis on performance reviews and feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on HOW you play in the sandbox and instead on what you CAN accomplish. Find the happy balance between data analysis and collaboration and timely action.

    I worked at Bush Brothers

    Pros

    Brilliant colleagues, challenging assignments, visibility to senior management, great compensation and benefits package, privately held company with a lot of integrity.

    Cons

    Low turnover limits promotion opportunities. Knoxville is a good place to raise a family, but may not be the best location for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bush works hard to hire the right people. That should enable senior leadership to push more decisions down to lower levels.
