Worth it for a new grad or someone looking to get experience, avoid otherwise

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

ProsBonus and profit sharing programs are awesome. Great healthcare plans. Never a dull moment and very fast paced.

ConsAntiquated ordering and inventory systems. Still doing cost based accounting, which went out of fashion back in the 80's. IT department is hamstrung by the rest of the company. Ancient, ineffective computer systems (still on XP). Revolving door for employees under you. Oh, and if they call in, the marketing manager has to cover the shift because of the no overtime mantra. Most of the time as a marketing manager you may not get to do any marketing, but you sure will gain experience cleaning showers, toilets and running a register. And the micromanagement gets worse by the minute.

Advice to Senior ManagementLive the values you espouse. Coach, teach and train marketing managers, don't threaten us. Quit the micromanagement. We don't need the same email sent to us 15 times, we saw it the first time. Let IT be free to innovate to help us at store level. And for goodness sake, get off of cost accounting.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
