Middle Management Old Skool (Under-schooled Clique) Is Obstructive to Productivity

Retail Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

ProsExcellent leadership utilizing top of the line research, demographics, latest psychological sales research and implementation into personnel management and open door from entry level communications consultant to the CEO.

ConsIF you use the open door, it makes the middle managers look bad and they find a way to get rid of you!
The top does not know what the middle is making the bottom do. And it is very frustrating. Also likely why the company is not still an A+ company like it used to be, sadly. generations of my family have worked here.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake it easier for the very top to know that the middle is actually doing what they want and think they are doing, and that the bottom isn't getting persecuted for carrying out the excellent training they are receiving, especially in retail. It really is excellent training, with excellent science and reasoning behind it, but once the management skills get to the stores, the other managers make sure its tossed?!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
