Pros

Company does an excellent job of finding smart and talented people.

Cons

Severe lack of leadership and strategy or stratedgy that's inconsistent with the company's vision/mission

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house at the executive management level. The company is notorious for indecision, unrealistic expectations of how much time should be spent on a job, poor process, significant spend on projects that will do little to move the needle and lack of commitment towards making progress on the larger strategic projects that are really critical to the overall organizations success (ecommerce and crm redesign). Additionally, the overhaul is needed at the executive level because the people that are in place today, do not know what to do with the talent that they bring in. They do not know how to empower and motivate people. Rather there is a toxic culture that is riddled with finger pointing, personal agendas, and bad politics.

    I worked at FTD full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are some very talented people scattered throughout the company that work very hard and understand the meaning of team work.

    Cons

    The Director levels seemed to battle against each other, building fiefdoms and engaging in power struggles without adding any value to the overall portfolio. They are very difficult to work with and for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the egos in check, and start bring leaders and not bosses. Creating a more positive environment to work in, where everyone drives towards common goals would help retain the high level talent that I witnessed leave on a regular basis.
