    Negative Outlook

    I worked at ACityDiscount full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great employees, for the most part.

    Cons

    Have to walk on eggshells around management. They pick certain employees to make examples of, yet never look at the drunken salesman or stoned member of the executive team. If you KNOW anything about the backhanded operations going on there, you're considered to be a threat and will be escorted out, soon enough.

    Advice to Management

    The psychotic behavior of certain members of management need to be addressed. The way employees are attacked is something to be ASHAMED of, AND lawsuits waiting to happen!

    I worked at ACityDiscount full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sales staff is a lot of fun to be around. Mostly ex-restaurant people. Also, their web programming guy is super-talented.

    Cons

    Family-owned business. Draconian management style. No room to breathe whatsoever. If your job requires independent thought, this is not the place for you. Very toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Stop berating employees in front of their peers (in person and on chat). Think about why micromanaging your top people may be the reason you're not growing. There are great books out there about nurturing talent and getting the best out of your people. I have been a general manager and I can tell you that a workplace directly reflects a leader's values. Your workplace is full of fear and insecurity. It's sad.

    Pros

    Company reps would bring breakfast and lunch sometimes
    HR manager was best part of ACityDiscount. Horrible, horrible place to work!

    Cons

    Bad benefits
    Bad management
    Dirty, unsanitary workplace
    High turn over rate
    Employees consistently unhappy with the way they're treated by management

    Advice to Management

    Review the reasons why employees quit soon after receiving employment. Evaluate pay, attitudes, and common employee complaints. Treat people well, and you will receive the same treatment in return.
