    Pros

    The actual work was simple.
    The customer always appreciated whatever help your were able/allowed to give them.
    Lots of retail food entities near main office.

    Cons

    Weak senior manager who plays favorites. His favorites can't do anything wrong, he will immediately dislike you if you question any of those people, and if any of those people dislike you, senior management will as well. Should any of the favorites question any of your abilities, get ready for an uphill battle.

    IT & HR are located in Cleveland, so good luck getting anything done quickly. You are lucky if your issue is handled inside of one month.

    Every department is an island that has declared war on all the other islands. It's amazing how they will stab each other in the back to get what they want.

    Be prepared to clean the building. The janitorial staff was laid off, so each person has assigned cleaning areas, and that bathrooms are on rotations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop allowing your personal relationships to influence your business acumen.

    Look at the people you have chosen to run your departments- look at how they take advantage of their position, how they attack others, and how they handle customer interaction.

    Hire a janitor/maintenance person. Coming to work in "business casual attire" and cleaning bathrooms and floors is not acceptable.

    Pros

    good when sales are good, decent benefits in the current time, good people, allot of seniority, good human resources, good pay

    Cons

    senior leadership very sales oriented, puts blame for troubles on non sales staff, senior leadership can not always be trusted, senior leadership expects too much for nothing,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support more than just the sales staff, need to improve morale, find more than just the negative, realize there are ups in downs in the industry
