Nice company, horrific management.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Addison, IL

I have been working at Pampered Chef full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat Benefits, friendly employees. Nice working environment with up to date equipment.

ConsThere are some truly TOXIC employees in senior management. At times it feels like I'm back in junior high. Our director encourages employees to "rat" each other out and will often stomp around the office screaming at people. Management should have no say in who you eat lunch with, criticize you for stepping away from your desk to use the restroom, or ask you to spy on their peers. High turnover makes it difficult to build good work teams. IT is very chaotic.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that some employees are detrimental to the success of the company. Fear and intimidation are not good ways to motivate your staff. If a manager cannot keep their staff for more than 5-6 months at a time, perhaps there is a problem with the manager.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
