I worked at Handleman

Pros

Great work employer, very supporting management, small company so lots of opportunities to work in other departments

Cons

Not very nimble. Hence good ideas are not picked and implemented quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get more innovative managers into the ranks. There are lots people who have been working for years and seem to be out of ideas for the current business model
