Pros

There are a lot of nice, hard-working people getting the job done every day. Good product.

Cons

Patriarchal company that is not female friendly. Very few women in senior leadership roles. The few who are do not attempt to mentor other women to help them advance into senior leadership. Zero opportunity to advance career in central services areas of the company. Best opportunity is to work within one of the brands, but seeking to transfer from a central services area to a brand is discouraged and, I suspect, often sabotaged. Corporate values are words only, not embodied by senior leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seek to become more open to the personnel that perform the daily work that truly contributes to the success of the company. Seek to become approachable by staff at all corporate levels. Currently, the CEO does not even make eye contact or say hello when he passes less senior staff in the hallway.

Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Get rid of the ME attitude, it takes a whole bunch of people below you to get the results you wanted.
