Good company in need of some fresh management to become a great company

Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Aaron's

ProsThere are good opportunities to learn new processes and business concepts but you have to be willing to teach yourself (little if any sponsored training/education). There are some great people at Aaron Rents (store support centers in metro Atlanta). I liked my boss as a person and he drove me to do more and learn as much as possible to succeed.

ConsLow pay, little advancement opportunity. Management sees most home office employees as a liability and as necessary overhead. If you're not generating revenue for Aaron Rents you might as well be siphoning gas from the CEOs car. The good old boy network is alive and thriving at Aaron Rents.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo whatever must be done to improve corporate culture. You have great people working for you, it wouldn't hurt to let them know. Compensate people better and you'll keep the talented individuals that you know are more expensive to replace than to retain. Offer stock options - it's the cheapest benefit to offer and the most appreciated (other than cash) by employees. I would have stayed had I been offered competitive pay and stock options (the company has a bright financial future).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

All… Advice to Senior Management: Being privy, albeit briefly, to the daily ends and outs of the upper management of this company made me physically ill and contemptuous… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
