I worked at W.B. Mason

Pros

Large privately owned company. Aggressively trying to grow by growth and buying competitors.
Good vision for continued growth. Good relationships with vendors.

Cons

With the concentration on rapid growth there is a huge need to better prepare people to become managers to facilitate the growth.

 Current management seems reluctant to trust people to carry on the original culture of the company.

  The "Whatta Bargain" area is not viewed as a real catagory but rather as an after thought.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stress the 1 stop shop potential of the company. Grow the furniture business by becoming involved with organizations such as IFMA and BOMA. Push the "Full Service" model by Sales of new and used furniture, taking trade ins to lower project cost to customer, service/repair of furniture and offering design services. Stress partnering with the customer to give the customer better value for their $$. Do not overlook the "Whatta Bargain" area. It has the opportunity for the largest growth % while having the best GP.

    I have been working at W.B. Mason as an intern

    Pros

    Great people to work with in all locations, they make the day go by fast
    One of the best work cultures I have ever seen- so understanding that you have a life outside of the office

    Cons

    have to work some holidays that other companies may be closed for, just because it is retail so they do need to be open
