Pros – Work is easy and as long as your actions are recorded in writing by you, you will get through the day. Annual review means as long as you meet minimum requirements for job, you will receive a raise.
Cons – Management is flaky, decisions are made with little to no thought regarding business logic or financial consequences. The 'prime' skill middle and upper management possess is that of passing the buck. Everyone is willing to blame one another for incidents and mistakes, but no one is willing to find a solution. Also, all departments are not kept at same expectations or levels... favoritism runs deep.
Advice to Senior Management – 1. Stop putting the sales field on a pedestal -- they are costing you money and corporate talent!
2. If you have an Annual review, make it more beneficial than a superficial circus act... reviews should give employees genuine feedback regarding their work, not be a general 'good job' for all when there are clear work discrepancies.
3. If you want talented individuals to remain at Prime, provide career opportunities and benefits worthy of their time and skills. If you don't value their time, they will look elsewhere.

Pros – Prime is a great place for someone who is new in their career field, whether it be sales, HR, IT, supply or whatever.
Cons – Pay is below industry standards. Lots of corruption at the corporate level, bending rules to make the quick buck. A lot of racial discrimination, if you are not Arabic, Middle Eastern or from India, your job will always be on the line. Personal friends and family members are hired and kept on, regardless of skills or work ethic.
Policies change almost every week and the field/corporate are expected to shift gears at the drop of the hat. There is very little communication and/or facilitation between the field and corporate, resulting in lost revenue, missing supplies or any other negative.
There is a constant shift of executive level employees, new people coming in, regions shifting to different leadership. This causes a ton of problems for the field level stores.
Advice to Senior Management – Either have a 100% company audit from an independent member or close the doors. This company is nothing but bad news as long as you continue to be corrupt and discriminatory.
Pros – Fair company, great room for advancement IF you make the effort, whether it be in sales, management, or home office.
Cons – Pay scale is less than other companies, and although company is still growing, health benefit costs are high. Work load can be stressful in the sales field because of the retail nature of the business.
Advice to Senior Management – Training to improve those that are worth training. Employees give a lot to keep this company running, it's time to give back and show appreciation. The sales field is what keeps the ball rolling, and they are the under appreciated.
