    Solid job combing 3 companies in a short amount of time.

    I have been working at Escalate Retail full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of moving parts and solid growth until the crash of 2008 put 1/3 of the home furnishing customers out of business. Solid view of financial status.

    Cons

    Point solution R&D had to be sacrificed for enterprise integration.

    I worked at Escalate Retail full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The employees were great back in the days

    Cons

    Once it got sold and sold over and over again, the management worked you to death and lacked growth opportunity. Heavy on top management and not enough workers. Lacked corporate culture and everything was based on making money money regardless what was good for the client or employees.

    I have been working at Escalate Retail full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Really friendly people, helpful and welcoming. The pay is pretty good though in tougher times, there were no raises. Great flexibility and work-home life balance.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for growth to upper management or well defined roles with career paths. Also, not very proactive in jumping on to newer technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get down in the trenches.
