    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great brand recognition and smart employees. Good vacation, medical, dental, health benefits. Is dog friendly in most of the campus.

    Cons

    Poor management, non supportive, secretive. Retention problems, revolving door atmosphere. Extremely metrics driven. More, more, more recruiters is the "solution" for talent acquisition. So many that it becomes counter productive with candidate ownership issues and internal competition. No value given towards positive candidate experiences. Management tends to look for reasons to NOT hire. Too many obstacles in place towards making hires. No work/life balance. Tendency to down-level. Numbers-driven Agency mentality. Laughable "culture", crappy desks with no attention to ergonomics. Unethical leadership from top on down. Management kudos given to top brown-nosers. No shortage of Kool-aid for everyone!

    Advice to Management

    Keep your corporate ego in check, you're not as great as you think you are. Keep a mirror handy for self reflection.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits There is a great deal of in-house hiring Employees come from very diverse backgrounds; most employees are very nice. Great tools provided

    Cons

    Work can be repetitive Constantly change work processes Lot of walking involved Training for workers who have been with the company for many years is almost nonexistent Pay cap for warehouse workers

    Advice to Management

    Take time before changing the work processes. You need time to understand them. Make changes parsimoniously. Make sure they are applied across the board. Performance metrics alone won't help you. Performance is all about processes (i.e., managers' job). Use them to improve the processes and not to reward employees. Teach your employees as many tasks as possible to avoid repetitive tasks.
