Great people who care about the customers although poor senior management continues to drag the company down.

I have been working at Grand & Toy full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great people to work with, good benefits and reasonable comp plan.

Cons

Extremely poor, almost incompetent, senior management with absolutely no long term vision. Every decision is made based on increasing the bottom line in the next 30-90 days. No raises for years and years. Support has been completely removed with quality people laid off to be replaced by lower salary people. Few to no advancement opportunities. Do not listen to their employees or their customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a long term plan and stick with it. Have a vision that extends past the next 3 months.

    I worked at Grand & Toy part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People are very friendly; it feels like a family

    Cons

    Low pay, with poor incentives to gain "leads" no benefits to the majority of the front line and those with benefits must pay out of pocket for said benefits... Oh and I forgot to mention the massive lay-offs with little notice and small packages for some and none for others. Under-trained but talented staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider communicating across the board between different sectors. List en to the store associates. Focus, don't change your direction every few months. Don't close all your stores in one go! That is massive job loss and massive money bleeding out of the company to afford the contract terminations. Plus many do believe that the company has sunk. That is not true... right?
