    Pros

    Their benefits package is good and the co workers are by the large excellent. The employee discount is great.

    Cons

    1-HR is set on simply toting a company line. There is no advocating for employees at all anymore.
    Some companies state 3 goals- People, Service and standards. Cost Plus left off people.
    2- DM level and above refuse to believe that there are external causes to poor business trends. It is always staff performance.
    3- Privacy- I knew everything about everyone in the district. The DM had no concept of confidentiality.
    4- The company has changed from when I first joined. It lacks heart and soul.
    5- Told to write up employees for small infractions and at times that we were to fire staff as well due to perceived impressions based on nothing substantial.
    6- Micro managed to a large degree. Staffing, visuals, reviews and documentation directed by upper management, rewritten at times, and never applied to themselves when they had similar infractions.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror.
    The are greater cancers in the company than in the stores. Look at the DM ranks and at the executive level. Morale is low and there is no where else to look but above. Listen to your employees and ask them what is important to them and how can they help you be a better company. Group think is alive and well at corp.
