    Employees made this company, upper management felt otherwise.

    I worked at Fry

    Pros

    Strong work-life balance in certain positions, excellent health care coverage (during my time) albeit quite expensive, competitive salary.

    Cons

    Constant threat of changes from parent company who purchased Fry in Mid-2008. They left everything alone for a good two years, but suddenly communication within Fry became very disjointed and gossip based, resulting in an unhealthy environment. Upper management within Fry did nothing to help this and in fact made the situation worse allowing Micros to become an ominous presence within the workplace. Once top talent began leaving the company, it cascaded on. My understanding now is that off-site and on-site Contractors are the way of life there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cleanse out bad apples (if they haven't left already) and get a handle on gossip. Not by ignoring it, but by addressing it and keeping it fun, or at least interesting.
