Pros

No matter what problem the local work force encountered, it was met with a can do attitude and a real willingness to find a solution.

Cons

Working for this company, the first thing that you learn is that the corporate office believes that they can make no mistakes, no matter what. They were always correct.

Advice to Management

Sooner or later you will over capacity yourselves into a financial hole.

    Pros

    Shoe discount is good perk.

    Cons

    Not organized. Incomplete documentation to work from... No communication. But still expected to meet job estimates even though you were never told what the estimates were to begin with. Negative finger pointing environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get to the core of your real problems rather than pointing fingers and electing people to be the fall guy. Get realistic about your estimates. Create a culture of learning rather than "blaming".

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Hard to Hate

    Cons

    Unintelligent Peers and Higher Ups

    Advice to Management

    Stop being an X style corporation. The shoe store that let information travel in all directions will win.
