    Pros

    This company was a fabulous place to work in the past. Great career opportunities, family friendly, top flight management, energizing work environment, outstanding benefits.

    Cons

    Brought in outside management that has turned the place into a sweat shop. Cutting benefits to employees like crazy. What a sad turn of events for what was such a great Omaha company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    I use to like working here until this past year.

    Cons

    6 years with the company. They were going to fire me because my ticket was too low....so I quit first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to appreciate there employees. I never called out, did my job the best I could and they were going to fire me after 6 years because of my average ticket.

    I worked at Omaha Steaks part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The hours are very reasonable. Compensation is good for the work. There is opportunity for advancement, and they even offer tuition compensation if you are enrolled in relevant college coursework, in addition to some paid holidays and a 401k plan with matching.

    Cons

    Upper management seems slightly disconnected from what is going on at the retail level sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what the "front-line" employees have to say regarding in-store environment and promotions.

    Pros

    Great sales experience and training. Omaha Steaks experience can easily be leveraged for future positions with different companies.

    Cons

    High turnover and low pay. Unethical sales techniques at times but not for the most part

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not drop pay after 10 weeks to save money on turnover costs. If anything, reduce the pay from the start, but do not drop it. What do i know though, I'm sure you have analysts who know more about the costs.

    Pros

    Great manager and sales team at my store. Clean work environment, easy job.

    Cons

    Too many sales to keep track of, business model seems to change for retail store constantly. No open dialog between retail stores and corporate. Feel like we were on an island and not actually part of the company that was cared about. The sales goals are very hard to meet at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go visit your stores. Listen to employees, better incentives to meet the very hard goals to achieve. Give each store more power to create their own business plans.
