Pros

Very fair to management team.
Expectations are well defined.
Compensation packages are at current market value.
Compensation packages evaluated periodically and adjusted as needed.

Cons

Decisions from executive management come slowly.
Sometimes too much of a machine, and could get trampled if you don't keep up with changes.
Must be able to be dynamic, most people don't like change, but need to be aware company is always changing, so if you dont like change, keep away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back Bob Nardelli! He needed to do what needed to be done. He was decisive in decision making and not affraid to make a bold move.

    Pros

    Pay for the area is okay. Benefits are great compared to other opportunities avaiable. A great job to work while you are going to college.

    Cons

    If you aren't full time you are scheduled 0-39 hours a week. You will have to work most weekends. Days off aren't usually back to back. If you are scheduled 40 hours you might have tuesday and thursday off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly, understanding that thier work isn't thier life and that everyone has family beyond the orange box, and they will work harder for you.

    Pros

    The people on the front line dealing with customers are the best there is.

    Cons

    They can terminate you for any reason, or no reason by law. They allow people to have control over your job that should not be in position. They are unfair and they are not loyal to any long term people. They discourage a family atmosphere at work and genuine caring for the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage the values that the founders of the company instilled in all the people they hired, take care of each other, do the right thing, are the core values they came up with, stick to them.
