    Pros

    There were many great employees that cared about the business and the customers

    Cons

    No job security. Poor management. Disorganized. Worn out and scuffed products

    Advice to Management

    Management should have warned their employees that they planned on selling the company to give them an opportunity to line up
    another job. They also should have paid severence to those same, loyal employees . Instead Classic and Bright (who bought them out) released all their employees with no notice, no insurance, and no severance. It was appalling and I am still shocked by how callous they were (are). Do Not take a job with them, there is NO job security.
