Pros

Great place to start if you are new to marketing, a variety of opportunities to work on major retail-specific projects.

Cons

Bogged down by hierarchy, too many levels of approval. People development could be much better.

Advice to Management

Provide resources that people need - management training, leadership opportunities, and most importantly a single-minded strategic focus that everyone can stand behind.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Higher than average pay. Seems to compensate for high turn over. Easy to get in when new to the work force. They hire just about anyone, often regardless of any ability in the position. Some people do enjoy the environment, so it seems that it can be a good fit for some.

    Cons

    The culture, management as a whole, or lack of it. Have known several people who took jobs there against my advice and were ready to leave within a couple months. I left voluntarily and the lay-offs have not stopped in all the time since I left. They hire and fire, hire and fire.

    Advice to Management

    Need to clearly communicate to employees. More of an open door policy.


  2. "Service is everything!"

    Pros

    Family Oriented, Flexible, Respectful of their employees. Long-term goals are clearly laid out and explianed to all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Unknowing of several changes that will effect Salesforce in next 5 years...less focus on customer service and interaction and more on saving money.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize Key Competitive Advantage over competition which is our Service workforce and stop trying to find ways to reduce it.
