I have been working at Kellwood full-time

Pros

Good benefits, flexible hours, clothing discounts for all employees.

Cons

No salary increases, management slow to respond to industry changes, HR and IT are now small, 401k match below industry average, promotions are based on likeability rather than merit and ability.

Advice to Management

Provide incentives for career growth. Working hard is rewarded above working smart. This results in good workers leaving the company. Hard workers are good at spinning there wheel and going nowhere, only creating more needless work. Instead, promote smart workers who can increase production and increase throughput without the extra long, unrewarded work hours. The current incentive is to work long hours and produce little. The promoted feel entitled, thus only promoting those who do not challenge the status quo. Promote producers and the remaining workforce will follow or be replaced with producers.
