Disapproves of CEO

Pros

It is a solid company. They have ethics. There is good job security. They have a descent benefits package. The people are nice

Cons

No growth or development. You will not be promoted. There is no company culture. The company does not have even a company picnic. (There is one by the employee association, but you have be a member)

Advice to Management

Make decisions and lead. You are too scared to do something wrong so instead you do nothing.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    I worked at Southern States full-time

    Pros

    Some great people to work with.

    Cons

    Outdated ideas. Outdated management styles. Management doesn't engage with anyone because they have all the answers.
