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

    Pros

    We have been implementing significant enhancements in how we assess our internal leader talent through new processes implemented in 2017. This has been an innovative jump forward for our executive team and Senior Leaders. Although this process is new for many of them, once understood they have been jumping in with both feet. Each executive is shifting into this new way of identifying what our leaders need to be successful in their current role and future potential. It's very exciting to see the changes that are being implemented!!

    Cons

    Time! Like most companies, our execs and senior leaders are overachievers driven to do the best for the company. This means balancing the work they already have to do with the process changes that come. We need to continuously improve our ability to quickly prioritize our work, adjust our work effect and move in the new direction. This is a skill that takes ongoing maintenance.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient. These changes take time to understand and become part of our overall culture. It will not happen overnight, but it will happen. For those working and leading here at Ashley Furniture now, your positive energy and dirty fingernail approach will be the key to long term success!

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

    Pros

    Ashley Furniture has been the best life decision I've ever made. It has helped me reach goals, not only in my career, but in my life I never thought I would be able to. The company has strong urge to push employees to be their best selves. They offer great benefits, impressive starting wages and continuous self growth. Ashley has helped in more ways than just one; it really is the best company to work for.

    Cons

    There really isn't too many down sides of Ashley - they push you. And sometimes, that pushing is hard and you fail, but in reality that's the best part. They push into directions you never thought you'd like to be in. They make you uncomfortable, in order for you to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing me, even when I seem like I don't want you to push me any farther. Push me. I want to be my best self and employee. With your help, I know we can and will be the best furniture company ever.
