Large privately owned company.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ConsWith 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 Senior ManagementStress 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
