    Great people to work with.

    Cooperate changes initiatives very often and sends conflicting messages down to stores division

    Advice to Management

    Do more advertising and run more commercial the contractor segment is not enough to generate profits...and when other contractors. The tier pricing model is no good.

    Pros

    There a lot of good people working there and the benefits are decent. The organization provides for multi-cultural exposure and multi disciplinary opportunities.

    Cons

    The senior management is lacking diversity and has difficulty on delivering change. They are a very European centric group of people.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage them to gather more feedback from their employees and hold people accountable for delivering results. They also need to work in a more collaborative manner. Still too many silos.
