Pros

Great people to work with good company direction and management the laid back managers work on the floor for personal assistance

Cons

Fast paced, stressful at times I got trained in many areas over a short period of time, then had high expectations monotonous work over time long days, early hours

Advice to Management

I suggest training the employees slower, until mastery of a certain area, then continue to broaden as time goes on

    Pros

    Good Company, Good Vision and mission

    Cons

    Too focussed on Lean without worrying about customer requirements

    Advice to Management

    Develop business model to meet customer requirements


  2. Good environment to be nurtured, but not the most stable in terms of being recession proof.

    Pros

    Mid-size company made working there feel like working with close friends and family, allowing us to develop very good relationships with colleagues and peers.

    Cons

    Furniture industry is very volatile in the fact that it will be the first to feel the the downsides of a bad economy, and the first thing management will do is to arbitrarily cut head-count from all departments, regardless if you have been a good performer or not.

    Advice to Management

    Take a salary cut from $250,000 to $75000 before you start letting lower level people go.
