Take the job if you're desperate, otherwise hold out for a company that will pay you market wages and benefits.

Pros

If you are fine with stagnation, and have no ambition to advance (some people are comfortable in their surroundings) then this would be an ideal company.

Cons

Unprofitable company, mis-managed, poor benefits and lack of raises. There were no raises handed out for 2007 perfomances (except management bonuses) and 2008 looks to be on track to have the same results. The company is like going to high-school. Many "cliques" within the company, and if you want to just come in and do your job, the infighting, pettiness, and incompetence at the management level will prevent you from doing so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company wants to sell a "premium" product to the masses. It's just not working. Either the products are truly "premium" (they're not IMO), or they are yet another mass marketed lotion or soap. Make up your mind and either close the unprofitable stores, or reduce the price to reflect the market rate for the product. Remember, these are "Naturally inspired" products, not "Natural" products. If I want "Natural" products, I'll go to Whole Foods or some other organic store. Shutting off the lights during the day will only save us so much money, if you REALLY wanted to save money you would stop wasting money on conferences, and all of the shop ops reorgs.
