    Pros

    My fellow coworkers are great people. Employee benefits are adequate. Employer is seeking to expand business by building and purchasing new locations.

    Cons

    Corporate management is inflexible. Workplace has diminished morale. Current employment environment has changed from family friendly to expectations that salaried management work more hours than the 42 stated in the handbook.

    Advice to Management

    Increase hours provided each week and wages for the faces of you business to improve morale and productivity. Customer engagement and sales will increase.

    Pros

    Benefits ,holiday pay and schedule flexibility

    Cons

    The upper management acts on threats and fears. There is no such thing as a human resource department.

    Treat all employees the same and not give special passes to your work buddies. Women doing the same job and tenure should be paid the same.
