Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Summer hours and work from home 1 day a week.
Domestic Partner benefits.

Cons

Manager with terrible leadership skills and poisonous style is allowed to continue in same role.

Advice to Management

How many employees have to quit or ask to be transferred out of the same department before a director is removed? Apparently more than half a dozen is not the threshold. Ridiculous.

    Pros

    Highly name recognition
    Sold products that everybody needs
    OK benefits, decent time off

    Cons

    Managers showed favoritism and limited growth of those individuals they did not like
    Changed direction of company every few years
    When on vacation, still had to respond to email and other activities, no 'escaping'

    Advice to Management

    Don't show favoritism, ask employees where they would like to grow with company and then work to make it happen.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The company itself has some very neat and interesting products assortments which will make it very competitive in the future.

    Cons

    The Management was horrible. There was virtually no leadership or direction. The managers were tyrants and ruled through intimidation and fear. Would be a great place for unionization to come in and take over.

    Advice to Management

    District leadership needs to be more proactive in how associates are treated.
