    Pros

    Management encouraged to run department as own business.

    Cons

    Selling employees and selling managers so focused on sales, they do not give same attention to processes and procedures. Many lazy selling employees standing around clerking instead of working and actually selling. Company changing so often, makes it seem they can't figure out what works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees are not only your greatest strength, but also your greatest weakness. More accountability to selling managers/teams on adhereing to inventory processes and procedures. Do not focus only on sales results.

    Pros

    If you sell well, you'll be paid well.

    Cons

    Selfish selfish selfish. People used to be the priority here but now that sales have improved, and online sales have increased due to in store web fulfillment, sales come first. The"inverted pyramid" used to be a model for how things should run-- customers at the top, then employees, followed by executives etc. Does anybody even remember this concept? The employee is pretty much forgotten about-- they used to care but no longer. It's pretty sad. Oh, and management over 40 will pretty much be demoted because of wanting to earn the younger customers business by having young management. I could go on and on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your people more. Develop and train better leadership. Don't kick the experienced (I.e. older management) to the curb...those experienced in the culture have to train the future.
