Good Company experiencing growing pains

Branch Sales Manager (Former Employee)

ProsWorld class distribution systems. Broad product offering. Excellent e-commerce site. Excellent benefits offering. Pockets of very bright people in various departments. Excellent 401k match. Flawless execution on shipping and customer service.

ConsTop management mired in indecision. Risk adverse culture in certain areas. Not always on top of innovations in the market-place. Poor technical knowledge of industry with limited training for associates to close the gap.

Advice to Senior ManagementTop management would be well served by understanding that there are innovative ideas that can be obtained if they are open to listening to the voices from outside their inner circle. Top management does not adhere to the standards of the culture required of all others.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
