Pros

Pretty cool to work for a market leader. Competitors don't have their act together, so opporunity exists. Some good/fun people in the lower ranks.

Cons

Firm is losing money. No stratregy, direction, or quality management to pull it back. (Check financials) Everyone clocks in (salaried employees too). No trust from CEO who knows it all and his his select few who can do no wrong. Cannot recommend coming to work here unless you are unemployed and need the money.

Advice to Management

Clocking in - seriously? "Attention deficit disorder" management style is nerve racking and unproductive. Be better - invest (financially, culturally, and through trust) in those who make the company a market leader - your employees! Please!

    Pros

    Filtered water system and 2 monitors, like someone else said.

    Cons

    It's quite simple. Nobody (not even the CEO formerly of Vitamin Shoppe) in that company cares or strives to learn about the Natural Food industry, organic food or farming, or anything green at all. It's all about promos and margin.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your old school business mentality, it's extinct, or find a new job. New management, hire people with industry experience or even E-commerce experience.
