Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

the benefits are the only pro

Cons

No recognition
Promotions to those that are lowest on the floor
Top Producers aren't rewarded, or recognized like they should be
Screw the people who have the highest rank on the floor by letting them go, accusing them of not completeing the role of their job
Constant investigation on people if they actually are able to do their job with out being coached
Management is a joke~ They do not communicate, are not any where to be found when you need help, and are constantly baby sitting you to see if your at your desk

Advice to Management

Promote those that have been on the floor and know the role, not outside. Promote those that have the rankings, not the lowest end of the floor that have been inconsistant, and barely know what they are doing. Incent those that deserve it, not those that just barely made it, or just barely had an improvement over the past.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good environment from peer perspective - overall positive environment. Larger company provides a fair amount of internal opportunities to progress within an organization as opposed to outside.

    Cons

    Somewhat top heavy in management and not connected to the field - relies too much on analysis and marketing without validation of either numbers or results. Tends to be somewhat of an incestuous business with little opportunity to change old habits.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate a few levels and learn how to communicate better. Management style tends to create incentives and communication efforts based on satisfying the existing of management and not really helping to drive success at the operational level. Needs more consistency in operations and clear direction.
