No opinion of CEO

Pros

Friendly staff, great benefits, opportunities to move up within the company. Management was always very encouraging and supportive. They worked with employees flexible schedules.

Cons

Information about the insecurity within the company should have been shared with the employees sooner so they could have made preparations to find a new job before bankruptcy went into effect.

Advice to Management

Gottschalks should not have grown so fast. No one predicted the downturn of the economy but if the department store stayed small, limited to 10 to 15 stores, the company might have survived.
