Pros

Steelcase dealer, so it sells highly-respected products. Management always has best interest of the company in mind; they are not selfishly trying to suck the company dry. Strong values, and they do try to do the right thing.

Cons

Senior management has a horrible tin-ear when it comes to motivating and inspiring its workforce. I have heard it said by senior management more than once, "if they don't like it here, they should just get a job elsewhere." They do try to do right by employees through employee appreciation week and fun committees, but they are mostly childish activities. They display a large chip on their shoulder when they are being generous, as if it is a huge burden, and we are ingrates. They think of employees as children. People of color will not be found in leadership, and the token female position is constantly changing. There are no opportunities for advancement. Pay is mediocre.

Advice to Management

They need to get people in senior management that think a little differently from them. The most effective senior management I've seen has polar opposites at the top, so that group-think does not set in.

    Pros

    Flexible, provide employees with autonomy. Definitely an 8 to 5 culture if that's what you're looking for. Represent reputable product lines that are widely recognized. Employee appreciation events constantly being held. Warehouse and delivery staff on point and reliable. Awesome work environment (you're sitting in the best task chair on the market) which is also a showroom.

    Cons

    Leadership is extremely closed off from staff and are constantly in meetings, but rarely found on the front line where all the work is getting done. Support staff is extremely unhappy, overworked, and underpaid. Talented employees will likely leave to get paid what they're worth once the effects of the fancy office and $1000 ergonomic task chair ware off.

    Advice to Management

    Be authentic with your employees...loose the fake smiles and actually get concerned about what's going on in the workplace. Lead your organization and stop yielding to corporate at every turn of the road. You've got really talented and loyal people...invest in them. If you hired a proven sales manager/director and invest in a CRM tool you'll drive more income and afford to pay support staff closer to what they're worth. You sell world class product, but you're far from being a world class dealer.
