Required Change is Happening

Manager (Current Employee)

ProsGreat work environment, quality product, easy customer relations. Aspirational style for most consumers. "I love this store" is heard by at least one customer almost every day. Company is trend leader with compelling history. Benefits.

ConsCompensation trails competitors, this will become a bigger issue as more talent is needed to grow the business successfully.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course, to be competitive the organization must challenge non producers and eliminate more waste. New CEO is inspirational, believable. Get him out in the field as much as possible.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
