Pros

The business plan is on the right track- the senior leaders are engaged. You almost always can find someone who will support your through a process or is willing to listen and help.

Cons

(Some) Middle managment lacks conviction and willingness to take risks for employees. Unless this is pushed down from Senior Leaders.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior leaders either need to give more consideration and encouragement to middle managers- and/or provide a non threatening environment to foster communication and confidence. Do you really know the feedback from the sales field?

    Pros

    Great organization. Lots of opportunity to grow and move into different functions. Management team is pretty good and respects your opinion. Of course there are some challenging folks, but all in all a nice place to call home.

    Cons

    Corporate seems a bit out of touch with the rest of the business units. Not a very well structured training program, but if you have drive, you will succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the areas run more autonomous. Different parts of the country run differently.

    Pros

    The people! People are friendly, intelligent and hard working (for the most part). Work is interesting, company is up and coming, great work life balance. Trying hard to bring in top talent

    Cons

    Company is in transition - growing fast, which is good, but still need to replace some associates who aren't willing to change with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the change coming, and keep bringing in new staff who can handle it.
