Great company potential but poor management execution

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Golfsmith full-time

ProsExcellent product offerings and onsite club testing facilities and equipment,which is superior to other retail competitors. Good discounts for employees for merchandise and services.

ConsTraining is informal and written procedures are lacking. Management does not seem to truly care about the emloyees and rarely asks or implements employee improvement ideas.

Advice to Senior ManagementDemonstrate more interest in feedback from subordinates which is intended to improve company performance and show more concern about resolving the ongoing struggles of their employees. Formalize training and document work procedures, recognizing that increased productivity and less errors could be realized at a relatively low cost.

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

Happy at work and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
