Pros

Most of the people who work there are absolutely wonderful

Cons

Top, top management (excluding the president) strong arms everyone to the point that any sort of vision or creativity is kept confined within some excellent employees, due to pure and complete lack of job security. Everyone at Car-Freshner is expendable and everyone knows it. You can only rule by fear for so long.

Advice to Management

Stop bullying your employees. Allow them to challenge your views. They are not putting you down but are instead trying to better a company which, lets face it, is outdated.

    Pros

    For the area, Car-Freshner is an employer with some opportunities that locals like.

    While substandard, they do offer a decent health coverage plan for the region.

    Cons

    Nepotism is highly rampant and senior management is filled with ignorant individuals with little to know real world experience in management skills or knowledge of the industry. They think they are leaders in the industry, when in fact they are stupid (honestly). In spite of themselves, they seem to maintain afloat. The current owner (Ronald Samman) is very rude and overbearing, and under-hands operations of really talented employees. Car-Freshner as a culture is absolutely abusive and hopes to keep all employees "dumbed-down" so that anyone with any sense about business or technology are squashed, since that would mean a rebellion in the midst of the organization. Mention the word "knowledge" "leadership" or "ISO" and you will certainty be fired or let "go".

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, although many will not. They are under extreme pressure to be fear mongering and discourage any sort of talent whatsoever. They want "drones" who will carry out the under-handed practices they encourage.
