Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Norm Thompson full-time

Pros

Great people and team environment! Culture is one of being able to make your own decisions and being responsible in helping grow the future of the company. We are encouraged to be entrepreneurials... and make changes as needed to move the company forward. There are a lot of passionate people here working towards the same common goal!

Cons

The only con is that it's retail. You have to have the drive and passion to work retail. It's not for everyone. Are there long hours? Sometimes yes, that's retail. Are there direction changes,... last minute changes and a little bit of craziness? Sometimes yes, that's retail and reacting to the immediate needs of the customer.

Advice to Management

Need system upgrades.

Current Employee - Analyst

I have been working at Orchard Brands full-time for less than a year

Pros

I feel valued and appreciated here. The work/life balance here is more than fair and flexible work arrangements are common. Some complain about long hours but I simply don't see it. There's a gym and... lockerroom just for Orchard Brands employees (free), which is great.

Cons

Pay is about average to slightly below average but I think this is about as good as you can do as far as the pay to stress ratio goes. As this is a small company, career paths aren't obvious but... management does a good job promoting from within and ensuring that employees see a lot of different things if they stay a while.

Advice to Management

More 401K matching would be great. Tuition reimbursement would be even better.
