    I have been working at Atd American Company full-time

    Pros

    I worked at ATD American for many years. I enjoyed my time there, and thought I'd be here until I retired. Lots of politics, and management is partial. If you show them you want to work then you were an employ of value

    Cons

    Company sold their furniture division, said they were trying to take care of current employees, but in the end didn't.

    Pros

    Co-workers a plus. Good people for the most part. Good for first time job seekers. Well rounded hard working employees. Middle management flexible in most cases.

    Some upper management lacks direction. Poor employee morale. Micromanagement in certain areas hinder efficiency of other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Have faith in your people and get rid of dead weight. Let the people who know their jobs assist in growing the company. If you add to a persons responsibilities, compensate them! Acknowledge a job well done.

    I worked at Atd American Company full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours in the summer, flexible schedule allowed if you need it in general, Management is open minded and nice people, competitive pay, Sales contests for prize $, great location ( near train station), Company water-ice days, etc.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better - wish there was a retirement plan, Wish there were more place to eat lunch in the area. It's very suburban.

    Advice to Management

    Have more company-wide meetings so people know what's going on more. Communication can be lacking.

    Pros

    Small business with relaxed environment. The office complex is nice. The location is central to public transportation and highway.

    Cons

    The ownership group is unstable with the transition from the older generation to the younger generation having a lot of difficulties within the group.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your experienced employees to make key decisions that will help to ensure future success. Use the internet more and get away from the outdated ways of doing business.

    I worked at Atd American Company full-time

    Pros

    Get some experience working in an office while learning to be "thick skinned". (After all, it's a wholesale company.)

    Cons

    Nasty co-workers and supervisors, owners always back the supervisor, not the entry-level employee.

    Advice to Management

    I hope your company has changed it's ways since I worked there in 1990.
