A company which is dependent on a lot of external consultants but doesn't nurture internal talent.

    I worked at Michaels Stores part-time

    Pros

    The store manager, all managers work just as hard as the regular employees, sometimes harder.

    Cons

    Corporate has no clue how their policies affect their employees in all levels. They hire too many employees, knowing that most of them will get so few hours they will quit. (My scenario) Their stores will never run efficiently with their "first class service" because of their greediness. Only managers are full-time. Regular employees are part time, the store is understaffed, so you have to work your rear end off & try to do 3 things at once, while they get a few more bucks in their pocket because they didn't have to pay one or 2 more people to get things done up to their standards. So they end up with a line of disgruntled customers with one cashier, & disgruntled employees who see that there is no way to have the store run properly with too few employees working. It's hot in the store in the Summer-corporate is saving a few bucks by saving on the a/c, but at what cost?
