    Pros

    The people and fellow co-workers are helpful, understanding, and nice. My friend was able to help me get a job at Hudson, so your connections are definitely a useful tool if you want to join this company.

    Cons

    Management and communication on part of the employees can be improved. It is good, but it can be better. Staffing issues are a problem and there are work days in which the stores are under-staffed and employees do not show up. Communication and business cohesion can be improved, but it must come from both sides.

    Advice to Management

    I would say keep up the good work! The company is growing and becoming more important. It is definitely important to keep growing and hiring more employees who are qualified and competent enough to complete essential tasks.

    Also, be more upfront with the employees about their concerns, mostly in one-on-one dialogue. It is better to confront issues face-to-face instead of email or text message. Directness between employees and supervisor is definitely a priority.
