    Pros

    Upper Management is always trying to make the employees better satisfied.
    Pay is good as long as you perform, and the market does well.
    Most of magement and owners seem to care about the employees.
    They try not to lay off people when the economy is bad.

    Cons

    Management trys to do to much with in house computer programs and people. They make the jobs much more difficult trying to make an easy job difficult with technology.
    While it is important to watch inventory control and documentation of policies, to much power is given to Auditors. They keep all employees scared of them, including managment.
    I would suggest a good corporate book I have read called "The Trust Factor".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest a good corporate book I have read called The Trust Factor: Liberating Profits & Restoring Corporate Vitality . It explains how trusting people to do there job is a lot less expensive than trying to police all the jobs and activities. A good example is where one of the store managers was caught stealing a new riding lawnmower, cost approximately $5000.00. Then the Auditing Dept. was started. The costs of the Auditing Dept is close to $500,000.00 per year. That comes out to an awful lot of stolen product and making people feel like thieves or incompetents.
    Also the IT Dept. has gotten huge and very expensive, things need to be kept simple to run smoothly.
