Pros

Great atmosphere. People really try to help each other through great communication. Executive focus and engagement in programs is very motivating. No place to hide for people who try to get along with the bare minimum.

Cons

Upper management can be a little ridiculous when it comes to project deadlines. Work-life can take a hit. Very limited training. Competition can get stiff.

    Pros

    4 day work week, nice break areas, rf scanners are nice, building is new and not very dusty.

    Cons

    Production rates, unorganized picking areas, associates sent to both sides of the building and yet still expected to make production.

    Advice to Management

    Let associates transfer even if they have a written up. I was trapped in picking and terminated because my transfer to pack was denied.


  2. Learn a lot but will pay in stress

    Pros

    Smart people, Will learn a lot, Good company and culture frameworks

    Cons

    Growing too fast. Outsiders changing culture. Company and culture frameworks have lost their original intent. Turned into political organization.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the roots of the culture. You want leaders not managers.
