Overall--It's OK

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe health insurance.
Owned by the same family for many generations.
Very honest. They do not lie to you.
Corporate management is very good.

ConsThe local general managers have much autonomy, which can cause problems if he/she is not totally competent.
Some outside consultants are so relied on that they are virtually acting as the general manager and maybe even a department manager.
Many employees are in management positions just because they have been there a long time.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo local managers--do not depend on an outside consultant as an all-knowing savior. No person is 100% correct all the time. They have their own agendas, and those agendas may not be the same as yours. Have the guts to make your own decisions.
