Pros

Great people and excellent benefits!

Cons

Company is not growing domestically, closing more stores than opening. It is trying to cut expenses by eliminating upper level management positions and releveling them to Sr. Manager or Manager level positions.

Advice to Management

Any changes you are thinking of making, do them quickly, so as to not cause further disengagement of employees. Communicate and plan the changes more strategically.

    Pros

    The discount and the relationships you make.

    Cons

    Cliques and Management promotes you if you suck up and come in WHENEVER they need you. Not a lot of room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about you you you and actually care for your employees.

    Pros

    Love the discount and the fact that time in and out of the office is fairly flexible (within reason). Love working with teams.

    Cons

    Some managers don't know what they are doing (luckily I have a great one)
    Our planning system we adopted just doesn't work for our needs (management won't admit it)
    They play favorites
    Work life balance has decreased dramatically since we intergrated planning and distribution
    Everyone seems to be unhappy with their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Some of them need to get a clue!
