    Pros

    flexible work hours, easy to get time off when needed. Most of the associate help each others. Gift for kids during holidays help people balance work and fun

    Cons

    Poor Management
    No training. I have never received any kind of training in the company
    Take initiative is not rewarded
    Manager do not what they need to do
    No promoting the best employees. Promotion is given to buddies not to the hard workers on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Training should be implemented. and supervisors should be involved in process improvement. Most of the managers arent college educated. and they dont accept advices from other people.

    "Upper Management is lackluster"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good employee discounts on product. Coworkers are very fun to work with and are what make the job. On-site lunch provider that is different daily.

    Cons

    The separation between workers and management is very rigid. You must follow the chain of command and "open-door policy" are just buzz words. Management is very underqualified in many of the positions in the company, especially within the call center. Employee input is very rarely taken to heart as decisions are made from the top down with an iron fist.

    Advice to Management

    When an "open-door policy" is in place, mean it. Often times you can voice concerns to upper management but it is very rarely acted upon. Be a little more selective in choosing managers as opposed to just hiring them or promoting them due to seniority.
