    I worked at Ashley Furniture full-time

    Pros

    There are literally none. You'll find some awesome coworkers as someone else said, but everyone is interviewing - so don't get attached.

    Cons

    IT at Ashley furniture is a black hole, according to the chairman of the board and owner - Ron Wanek. I have never seen a company care less about its employees than Ashley. You are one of 26,000 employees and its made clear that you wouldn't be missed if you left. If you go back in history a bit on this website, you can see that it used to be a good place to work - all of that has changed. New executive leadership and new stringent rules about core hours made this place the hell hole that it is now. The entire 3rd floor is disorganized and management only looks out for each other. You are a nobody, and don't forget it. Brown nosers and butt kissers are rewarded heavily; while people that just work hard and head home to their families after work are left behind. There are TONS of other IT jobs in the Tampa area with better pay, more flexibility, and better work life balance - another opportunity won't be hard to find.
    If you are being recruited from out of state, they do that on purpose because the rumors of what a terrible company it is to work for haven't traveled your way yet. The IT community in Tampa is small and people talk. Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Start over from scratch, try again, do something. Start with recognizing when it all started to go downhill -- and there's your problem.

    I worked at Ashley Furniture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a steady pay of income and decent income.

    Cons

    Poor management. A worker was not treated with respect as needed. And the policy was only used at management goods. When a worker expressed his rights as an employee they would do their best to get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    Need new management

    Pros

    The company tries to foster a kind and caring workplace. Even to go so far as to create a bank of emergency funds that employees can get money from when an emergency arises.

    Cons

    Unfortunately they are still interested more in the bottom line and even when they over hire and have too many salespeople on the floor you will be blamed for your low numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Why don't you talk with employees as to why they might be struggling to make sales instead of just giving them the boot.
