    Pros

    If you are in the WPB area looking for a mid-level job where the demands aren't too great then TBC/Tire Kingdom might be the place for you. Especially since there aren't a lot of large employers between Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.

    Cons

    If you are looking for somewhere you can learn from executive management, be part of improving how a company operates or just be part of efficient and effective business operations TBC/Tire Kingdom isn't that place.

    TBC gets by but has dropped the ball over and over on doing any better than getting by. There is no backbone in executive management to drive the operating units to operate together efficiently, consolidate their supply chains or upgrade key systems - they've been working on replacing the POS for over 5 years and the project is still being 'launched'.

    Executive management ignored or didn't want to hear just how badly the operating unit was handling their franchisee agreements even while it was common knowledge at lower levels of management. Two years after replacing the head of that group many of the problems still exist.

    Sumitomo should see what is going on but has so far been diverted by the smoke and mirrors presentations they get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Truly address the problems in the franchisee structure otherwise there is no chance of it being profitable.
    2. Get the company to operate as one wholesale division and one retail division versus every company operating independently.
    3. Inventory/supply chain costs are one of if not THE key drivers of profitability. You had an initiative to drive changes in this area and it died. Put your leadership on the line and make it the top priority.

    Pros

    Overall, a good and smart group on the staff level. Complex environment; much to learn. Many challenges.
    Could be a fun environment.

    Cons

    Executive levels are insular, arbitrary, and punitive.

    Much lip-service given to work-life balance, training, and staff development. Reality is arbitrary
    sweatshop,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A productive work environment is not antithtical to treating employees decently. Make
    staff-deveopment a practice, not a catch-phrase.
