    Pros

    good vacation time and sick time. okay wages, nothing spectacular. management is good and mostly understanding. training program is good.

    Cons

    i don't really have anything negative to say about this company except that there is very little room for advancement here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no advice for management here, they do a good job communicating with employees and listening to employees on most matters.

    Pros

    Friendly Staff in warehouse and business area.

    Cons

    PM in IT has defined the Business Analyst role, but is clueless to the various artifacts used for the role to successfully elicit, analyze, and document business and technical requirements.
    IT manager insults quality BA's with many years experience under high profiled and established organizations because he hasn't a clue what analysts roles and responsibilities are and only listens to the PM who has no real BA training or real company experience
    All BA's that end up at the company end up being let go for not meeting expectations that are established by untrained, unskilled, and misguided staff who can only establish employment with this employer as other companies would deem them useless
    None of the production systems are used by the business and the business despise IT because all systems are not business friendly, and don't meet business requirements as the developer lacks structure and self control of following requirements that unfortunately are incorrectly written and incomplete due to BA's being forced to write improper requirements and use antiquated document templates created by the PM
    Worst company I have ever worked for, and I wish I could have know the future because I would have said no to the offer without hesitation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. All hired Business Analysts can't be wrong. Figure out the real problem and learn to allow analysts with years of real company experience to do what they have been trained to do and write requirements as trained. Don't insult staff because you fail to obtain consultation from Business Analyst trainers who are able to inform you of what Analysts do and don't do and the necessary artifacts used and when they are to be used based on the types of projects and expected deliverables.
    Jeff Fox doesn't realize how wasteful the IT department is creating useless systems.

    I worked at Lemans full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    LeMans is one of the biggest if not the biggest player in a fun industry. It's privately held so while there's a strong process& procedures culture there's not a lot of red tape. Considering the area and the industry salaries and benefits are OK. Most employees usually stay for a very long time. the office culture can vary between the departments. some are very restrictive while others offer more flexibility. Kinda also depends on the duties of the job.
    If you're into motorcycles you'll like the employee discount program they offer.

    Cons

    If you do your job right you'll have a job even when times get tough but there's not m,uch room for professional advancements. It can happen but one would have to be an uber-performer. Not a whole lot in terms of career development. For the size of the company it could really use a cafeteria, the vending machines are really gross.
    The company has been in business successfully for so long that they kindof missed the boat of the information era. Not a lot is shared about how the business is doing and what future plans are so as an employee you often don't have a perspective what you're contributing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should be more open and transparent about the company development and future plans. If you engage your employees you'll get more out of them.

    Pros

    Great health insurance, 401K, and vacation time. Great brands to sell.

    Cons

    During the interview process they make you feel like they would be lucky to have you as an employee. Once you're hired, they make you feel like YOU'RE lucky to work for them. They treat most employees like children, everyone is so afraid of getting in trouble, no one wants to make a decision so it ends up going to the Vice President when it shouldn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better customer service department. Value your employees and customers more. Hire a National Sales manager with some actual experience.
