    They are trying many different things to turn things around.

    I worked at Grand & Toy full-time

    Pros

    Some very good, talented people working in the company.

    Cons

    Industry is dying "death by papercuts". Strategy makes sense -but execution is horrendous due to lack of internal alignment. Tendancy to focus/react to short term versus long term. Too many priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to 5 key initiatives, instead of a billion. You may just get a few done. Make sure leadership team are all on the same page. You have a lot to work on in terms of culture.
