A company stuck in the 90's

General Manager (Former Employee)
Edison, NJ

ProsEmployee discount.
Everything else is a joke.

ConsMindless paperwork , audits and upper management that is bleeding the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of all the dead wood, district managers.
Care more about your employees.
Stop with all the operational junk, sales are what is important. NOT PAPERWORK.
Get rid of the Asett protection people, all they are is sales prevention.
Come off the high horse.
Make sure HR is actually employee friendly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
