Pros

Good momentum for positive change in the company from a turnaround situation, good people working there, good CEO and founder, open to changing and trying new things

Cons

Low salary compared to other jobs with a given experience

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees a heads up if they have something to work on, rather than being blind sighted in the performance review

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, the people are fun and we laugh a lot. Not micro-managed

    Cons

    Communication within the entire organization is lacking, whether it is between depts, or managers filtering information down the chain of command. The atmosphere in which people work varies GREATLY based on the management chain. Some managers make a point to demonstrate their appreciation of their teams, and other managers do nothing for their teams - there is no guidance from the top leadership of how to treat your employees. Playing "Favorites" here is a big thing. Policies are not enforced uniformly, it depends on if the boss likes you or not, and if the boss of other people like them or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop letting the tail wag the dog. Give direction from the top down - whether that is operations, training on administrative matters, enforcing policies uniformly. Rubio's is no longer a "ma and pa" little taco shop, you can't run the corporation as if it were.
    Oh, and you might want to inform your corporate officers, that the law is not optional. Compliance needs improvement. This is also a culture point that MUST change. This attitude is reprehensible!

    continue to believe in people and the best will come out of them!
