No opinion of CEO

Pros

My position was fairly well compensated for my age and experience.
Good relationships with co-workers, even saw then outside of work.
Holiday bonuses and the occasional unconventional perk.
About half the employees generally enjoyed working there.
Upper management seems well meaning, but actions undermine words.

Cons

Sales staff sometimes ended up working for a low hourly rate because they couldn't meet sales quotas.
Customers often get crapped on due to poor merchandise quality and slow returns.
Manager of my department was incompetent.
Cut wages of newly hired "workhorse" employees in 2008 in an effort to save a couple bucks.

Advice to Management

Take care of the people doing the heavy lifting in the organization. Improve your customer support operations to make it less of a hassle for the people who monetarily support your business. Stop producing such weird commercials.
