    I worked at C&H Distributors (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hmmm...parklike location convenient to freeway and shopping.

    Cons

    When I first started at C&H, it was a family run business that embraced solid values and loyalty to its employees and customers. It was then purchased by a German company who valued customer relationships but treated employees as numbers on a spreadsheet. C&H has now negatively transitioned further to value only the bottom line since being purchased by Global Industrial.

    Advice to Management

    This office desperately needs leadership. Employees feel duped and left in the dark. Communication needs to improve. Goals need to be shared. Create a sense of inclusion.

    Pros

    Pay is average or even a little above average for non-union job. Benefits are average for a non-union job. Health insurance is better value than average for non-union job. Laid off employees have been getting severance pay.

    Cons

    The management has always been more interested in consolidating and keeping power than in helping the company succeed or serving the customer. And who got promoted? Suckups and like-minded individuals. Quality workers either left or learned to shut up and not care. It became so obvious that the company was in trouble that the company president was fired and a new one was brought in from outside. He cleaned house somewhat a year later and about six or seven executive staff were let go, but the damage was already done: the incompetence of the upper echelon helped make the recession ten times worse and a lot of employees were laid off. And most of the managers that are still around haven't changed: the "teacher's pets" get away with anything and everything, the workers that aren't liked by the boss get subtly harassed. They still are more interested in looking good to their immediate superior than to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    If a company is in such bad shape that they fire the president and hire a replacement from the outside, talk to the employees about what's wrong. It's not a sign of weakness or indecision, it's an acknowledgement that they've seen the real problems and might have solutions. Just touring the facility and saying hi is not talking with them. Send out confidential questionaires, do interviews in private, something to get the inside scoop so that employees can talk freely without fear of revenge by management.

  3. "Sales"

    Pros

    Co Workers are great to work with. Immediately had a sense we were in it together and not competing for sales

    Cons

    After Global purchased C&H, immediately things went downhill. Micro managing became a way of life and it looks like it's picking up speed. favoritism is rampant. Ok job if nothing else, otherwise, if you have a choice, pick somewhere else to work

    Pros

    Work life balance and great coworkers

    Cons

    They will never hire from within.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and not in the outside consulting firm to do what your managers should be doing in the first place.
