    I have been working at Ashley Furniture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Two of Ashley's female leaders were awarded the STEP Ahead Awards (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Production) for exceptional leadership for women in Manufacturing. I am proud to work for a company who takes the time to recognize the strong women in our Manufacturing division.

    Cons

    The Manufacturing industry, overall, does not have enough female representation in leader roles. Keep up your efforts to change that at Ashley!

    I have been working at Ashley Furniture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about Ashley is that the people I work with are fantastic. Also has the best health benefits of any company I’ve worked for.

    Cons

    Executive changes in direction on a monthly basis. More emphasis placed placed on if you are physically sitting in a chair in the office than your actual work performance or hours you put in. Career advancement more about who you know and work for than what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and transparent. Inconsistent messaging is a morale killer and puts little faith in executive leadership. Adapt to current workplace trends .
