    Pros

    Hard working people in the stores.
    Good people in the office to work with.
    Getting paid every week.
    Potential……

    Cons

    Management....top leadership is really lacking.
    Very little in terms of communication or direction.
    Dysfunctional
    They do not understand performance management or how to train and develop talent. If you meet someone at the company with good skill sets, they acquired those skills from somewhere else.
    High turnover. They do not track it.
    Clear objectives are tough to come by for performance reviews.
    You will likely not grow professionally.
    Short sighted in decision making for both people and the business in general. Poor use of resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wow not sure where to start.
    I would love to see the people working there give the VP level and above a 360 review. I imagine that it would suggest to start over. That would be a good first step.

    Pros

    You get motivated to find a better job asap.
    You learn a lot about California Labor Code (special attention to breaks/meal periods, mileage reimbursement, overtime and such).
    You become quite handy when you fix the company's property.
    You get paid like you've never been paid before.
    Minimal (if any) raises help you to live a humble life in today's consumer-driven world.
    Your achievements and leadership are nothing comparing to your friendship with boss (friends matter kinda thing).

    Cons

    Cons? What are you talking about?
