    Pros

    Great, hardworking people in the trenches
    Nice facility
    Respectful workplace
    Fair salary (as long as you're not depending on raises or bonuses)

    Cons

    No rhyme or reason to what we were being asked to do
    Performance Management policy did not accurately reflect performance
    Fast pace did not support any real direction
    I was affected by 8 major management changes in 2 years
    No opportunities to innovate or take chances, very reactive

    Advice to Management

    Sears has some incredibly bright and hardworking people who are being forced to waste their time on ESL's pet projects. No one has the courage to stand up and question SHC's direction, we were only reacting to Eddie's whims. If SHC is just ESL's hobby, that's fine, but then let's really innovate instead of scrambling and spinning our wheels.
