    I worked at Barrett & Stokely full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate management tended to listen to ideas,
    Seemed willing to work with staff on their ambitions at the company,
    Very supportive coworkers and upper management- they want you to do well
    Filled with a lot of good people, and they treat you fairly

    Cons

    Some disorganization on site left from previous mismanagement, and miscommunication
    Some people "stuck" in their way of doing things
    Pay could be higher
    Sometimes upper management didn't groom new employees as well they probably could have, and more of "expected" things to go well, as opposed to helping them go well.

    Advice to Management

    One side of the company runs one way, and other properties run differently, and it can create headaches for staff who aren't sure the best or "right" option. Having more structured guidelines and leases for all properties will go a long way. I think you have good people at the company, so just listen to each other, try not to blame each other. Miscommunication happens, but fixing those issues is easy with some effort. Create trust between employees. Mostly, though, you are running a good company!

    Pros

    There are none. My time at this company was miserable.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Disrespectful managers. Micro-managing at every level. Nowhere to turn for help. You will truly feel like an outsider here.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house (at the corporate level).

    Keep your old fashion management style. It is the best so don't try to "fix" it. It just fine the way it is

    I have no pros to give. There was nothing enjoyable about my time with the company.

    Hostile work environment and nowhere to turn for help without the fear of losing your job.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer work at your site-level employees. Make them feel safe to come to you if they're having issues with regionals. Make your employees feel valued.

    I have been working at Barrett & Stokely part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company cohesion - very in touch with the employees. Open door policy, striving to correct any problems that may arise quickly and efficiently. Performance is recognized by pay and praise. I am very happy to be a part of this company!

    Cons

    Loyalty is almost too much - some employees that have been working for the company for many years do not work to their potential and do as little as possible to get by, no reprimand or termination will EVER take place!
