    Pros

    -Excellent employee loyalty in some departments
    -Hard workers who care about success and are passionate for their business and fellow employees
    -Compensation packages are fair (and in some departments, above market)

    Cons

    -Decision making at the management level is painfully slow
    -Company is risk-averse and conservative (too slow moving for ecommerce)
    -Like many publicly held companies, there is too much long-term sacrifice for short-term gain
    -Expect no personal life for the 3 weeks leading up to Christmas, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Invest in innovation
    -Remove built-in layers of bureaucracy

    Former Employee - Field Business Consultant in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at FTD full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work from home environment, and working with local florists, who are the hardest working people I have ever met. You get to be very close with them, and involved in their lives, and feel a great deal of satisfaction in trying to help their business become better.

    The money was good for the job responsibilities you have.

    Cons

    The has been a lot of senior management turnover, and thus, the direction and focus of the company keeps changing. They say they are a partner of the local florist, but they really are not. There is so much politics involved here that it makes it hard to do your job and maintain any sense of integrity.

    The company is not growing, so there is very limited career advancement opportunities.
