    Management is lacking, upper management ineffective and poor decision making.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Proscasual work wear daily, stocked kitchen, nice offices.

    ConsHorrible management, from mid to upper. They do not know how to manage people or their resources. Some in management are not qualified and drive employees away. No growth opportunity, no cross training, upper management making large salaries need to be shed. Hypocritical in their management style. Mission statement is shaky at best. They don't value employees, high turnover. Had a great core business and then they went off track purchasing companies that contradict the main core business model. A large majority of everyone's job there is working through the jungle of systems that do not interact and are extremely cumbersome and is a labyrinth of bandaid fixes upon bandaid fix. The separate offices are not united and each run things differently. A very messy disorganized place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are insurmountable problems that need addressed. Outsource help and stop taking resources from other areas to cover this, as then a whole new set of problems develop. Make the tough decisions and get rid of ineffective management that are only there because they came with a purchase. People see through the meetings that are always pep rallies without addressing real problems. And employees are tired of seeing athletic accomplishments from 30 years ago as part of a corporate meeting. It's irrelevant, redundant and serves only the ego.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company cares more about their shareholders than their employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits - Extensive supplier network

    ConsExpected to work excessive hours to meet monthly/quarterly deadlines. No regard for work/family balance and limited opportunity for growth

    Advice to Senior ManagementInterview employees doing the day to day operations to get a better of understanding of the excessive work load and reward employees with more than ACE nominations (internal company recognition)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Solid basic business, but poor leadership

    Market Analyst (Former Employee) Worcester, MA

    ProsThe company is well position to succeed with its core business of retail sales, and if you stick around long enough some of the higher ups are well compensated.

    ConsThe decision to go public was terrible. Whereas before the company could have focused on gaining new business and improving margins in its retail sales division, it now has to focus on other initiatives to gain the attention of investors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBuy back the stock, eliminate the superfluous business lines, and focus on what you do best.
