    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Southern States full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy going company culture and low stress environment. Currently providing me with financial assistance and flexibility to pursue a master's degree.

    Cons

    Recently went though restructuring and downsizing. This is a cooperative owned company, so pay is lower than at for profit businesses of similar size.

    Advice to Management

    Better explain shifts in business focus and progress the business is making towards that ends.

    I worked at Southern States full-time

    Pros

    Great discount, fun to work with farmers, not traditional retail

    Cons

    Little to no strategy from leadership, each district is run completely different from one another, no consistency in HR policy (which makes developing and leading teams very difficult)

    Advice to Management

    Either give each store autonomy to run as a micro-regional unit, or have a consistent strategy for each type... The middle ground is not a winning place to exist long term.
