    Pros

    Tons of potential, started out great with leaders that had vision and a can do attitude. Benefits were marginal yet not the worst in town, flexible schedule. Peers are great people.

    Cons

    Compensation model gets a big thumb down. Serious lack of upward mobility. Leadership/management started out like a dream come true only to end up being a nightmare. If you are a techie, you should avoid this company unless you can verify common sense has been deployed to entire IT department. If your cup of tea is Accounting, HR, BA, Admin Assistants or supply chain... please be prepared for long hours and interesting office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the drawing board in every way.

    Terrible company. Not trustworthy at all. It appears Fidelity wants to sell it so they are cutting to the bone.

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits. Company values sound nice but they don't believe in them.

    Cons

    Benfits are average. The upper leadership (C- Level) spew out lies during their town hall meetings. Things like don't listen to the rumors about being sold, 3 month contractors have been told many times they would be hired and never were.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone as adults. Stop the lies.


  3. Chaotic environment primarily driven by ownership structure

    Pros

    "Some" good people. Somewhat flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Pay was not worth all the extra jobs that where done.
    Talk, promises, and then management ignores you. Get it in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Say what you know and do what you say. If you make promises you can't get mad when employees come to collect. Confront the problems and take care of them. Just ignoring them does not make them go away. Just the good employees.
    It's not only about numbers!

    Pros

    Great People to work with. Made many friends and enjoyed going to work for many years till the last few.

    Cons

    STRESS!!! No compensation for getting a job done. Upheaval in Mgmt. Newer IT System was a disaster from implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the IT System of the past few years if you haven't already. SR Mgmt should be regional and not all in Denver. Market should be looked at regionally and not nationally. Supply and Demand along with overall economy is different in all geographical regions of the US. Conclusion: Bigger is not always better.

    Pros

    Growing business. Good location. Seems to be working I projects to make the job easier.

    Cons

    There isn't enought time set aside for training. The tools are not there to feel confident in your job.

    Advice to Management

    Training is key. Please do not lose sight of the fact that training is important and employees need to feel like they have the tools to succeed.

    Pros

    The good work environment is one of the best reasons I have for working here. Employees to employees and customer to employee relationships are for the most part friendly and productive, making for a fun and relaxed work culture. Local management is good, they look out for their employees, encourage them to advance, and are well liked even by the few employees that don't like each other.

    Cons

    Intense workload in the summer months, time difference from AK to the Lower 48(for special orders), vague job duties/descriptions(within roles, i.e. cashier, inside sales I, inside sales II, receiving, inventory control)
