  1. I learned a lot working at UFP--but I didn't always enjoy the experience.

    Pros

    Great people--Very dedicated to the company and they tend to stay for a long time
    Dynamic environment--new projects and opportunities pop up frequently

    Cons

    Main focus is on sales--operational improvements play second fiddle
    Most people at UFP have limited experience outside of UFP--improvements and innovations from other industries aren't embraced
    Company strategy and direction seem to be missing

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some new blood--hire individuals with experience selling to other retailers
    Operations and cost control need to be as much of a focus as sales


  2. Glad I don't work there any more.
