I worked at FTD full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Company does an excellent job of finding smart and talented people.

Cons

Severe lack of leadership and strategy or stratedgy that's inconsistent with the company's vision/mission

Advice to Management

Clean house at the executive management level. The company is notorious for indecision, unrealistic expectations of how much time should be spent on a job, poor process, significant spend on projects that will do little to move the needle and lack of commitment towards making progress on the larger strategic projects that are really critical to the overall organizations success (ecommerce and crm redesign). Additionally, the overhaul is needed at the executive level because the people that are in place today, do not know what to do with the talent that they bring in. They do not know how to empower and motivate people. Rather there is a toxic culture that is riddled with finger pointing, personal agendas, and bad politics.
