    Ashley makes large investments in their aggressive pursuit of growth. Working for Ashley there are always many exciting new directions we moving in as we are in constant change, which is necessary at the rapid pace retail and manufacturing is changing.
    The investment Ashley has made recently in training employees with events that include the top people in business and personal improvement has been extraordinary!

    Not all pursuits work out. It can be frustrating when you pour yourself into a new pursuit and we move on to something different.

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

    Pros

    travel opportunities, great company values, career opportunities

    Cons

    no work/life balance, only basic benefits, no sick days, very few holidays and minimal vacation days, no flex time or flexible schedule; suffering from silo culture but trying to get more collaborative

    Advice to Management

    treat employees as you want to be treated, give flex time and sick time so that employees don't have to use vacation days when they are sick or come to the office and infect everyone....very bad policy or lack thereof; continue to break down silos and empower team members to collaborate across departments

    Pros

    Other than upper management the job was good

    Upper Management and owners changed their minds on directives on a daily basis. No consistency!
