No opinion of CEO

I worked at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Compensation is higher than average for the market

Cons

I voluntarily left -- I thought this job represented a dynamic long term career opportunity and was completely dis-enchanted.

Overbearing management -- gatekeeping, silo'd communcation, turf battles impede productivity.

Individual managers focus efforts on controlling communciation and acting as exclusive subject matter experts -- managers clearly DO NOT understand their role to empower and leverage the expertise of their staff.

Benefits offerings out of date. I.E. -- probationary periods on 401K participation, etc. This is not the kind of benefit package one expects when working for an employer of this national scope

Advice to Management

Priority 1 -- undertake a cultural shift RIGHT NOW -- fix the friction between "field" and "corporate" departments/functions. Establish a true matrix organization where communicaitons are ENCOURAGED across the hierarchy and across business functions.

Provide clear unifying communication all the way down to line-level employees.

    I worked at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Founding leadership had rock solid principles.

    Cons

    Middle management seems anti-intellectual and unfamiliar with best practices of basic management philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    Founding leadership should roll out dead wood and bring on the best and brightest to fill critical and key positions.
