    Pros

    They allowed the opportunity to grow if you have the initiative and drive. They have a decent benefit package including purchasing LZB furniture at a discount.

    Cons

    Boys club, lots of politics at the corporate office. Management is out of touch with what the real issues are. Mgmt. doesn't care about the employees and their work/life balance. They will push until you literally break. The politics are holding the company back from reaching its true potential.

    I have been working at La-Z-Boy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good retail experience. Good opportunity to learn the basics. Opportunity to work in various capacities to drive the business and experience managing operations, sales, and design.

    Cons

    Current pay structure for Sales Managers/Leads is not commensurate with duties and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Pay scale is disproportionate to scope of duties and level of expected performance.

    Pros

    Decent Salaries amongst the managers.

    Cons

    Politics override talent, lots of favoritism. Low morale. The word "Team" is heard consistently but not demonstrated between most of the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team. Get to the root cause of problems and fix them. Do not let politics get in the way of talented individuals. The effect of not following through with plans is creating the high turnover in the departments. Promote good talent and engage in your employees.
