Does Central Garden & Pet offer a yearly bonus?

Pros

Great new CEO and President of CLS, promising pipeline of new products

Cons

Human Resources is untrustworthy - always has Upper Management's back - does not go to bat for employees. FMLA not approved. No remote work until COVID. Then it's proven that people can get their job done while not in the office. Lack of work life balance - most people do not have kids - Management has no concept of real life with family obligations & inflexible. Holds different personnel to different standards. Some first line managers are great and flexible. Others are not and play favorites. Expect you to be in chair during normal office hours but no flexibility for medical issues. They terminated someone who was going through chemotherapy for missed work. Toxic work environment. Different standards for different employees. Warned for making a joke but VP made same joke before and after. Lack of training - Thrown in the deep end and given no guidance by manager. Multiple wasted efforts on product development. High turnover in sales - Bonuses not given when those sales numbers are not met - Demotivating policy Lack of resources and support from upper management for essential business needs CEO and upper management reward themselves with special in-year bonus while rest do not get COLA or other basic annual increases Large gaps in salary between positions. CEO:avg employee salary is 100:1

Advice to Management

Stop paying lip service about valuing your employees and raise salaries. Establish consistent policies that promote work/life balance and allow flexibility for employees to meet family obligations while also meeting business needs. Make everyone FTE bonus-able and make those dependent on achievable goals for said employees. Eliminate toxic managers and work environment.
