Nice people (for the most part) astonishingly poor decision-making and top management

Pros

A lot of the people are really nice. Some of the benefits were very creative, although oftentimes deliberately inexpensive, which is fine, it just shouldn't be used to justify a lack of more traditional benefits.

Cons

Obscure, unkind politics. A very political, back-stabbing environment that pretends it isn't. There is a significant lack of sustained direction, and almost no professional management that really knows how to support employees. Overall, I regret ever working there.

Advice to Management

Resign, and make way for adults. transparency and honesty are essential components of trust. When people don't get the facts, the rumor mill takes over which is incredibly destructive. There is a terrible "buddy" network that is destructive.

    Pros

    Cons

    - Stagnant company, not a lot of overall growth.

    - High degree of internal politics amongst middle-level management

    Advice to Management

    Challenge the work force to meet goals and allow employees to grow and take risks. Overall company needs to increase risk tolerance. But will see if transition to Sonic allows for this change.
