    I have been working at Grand & Toy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues and clients are great to work with.

    Cons

    Zero opportunity to advance, more restructuring has reduced headcount.
    Negative Compensation changes almost every calendar year.
    Constant increased work load and new role expectations without any consideration for merit increases.
    Support continues to be cut back and outsourced to countries outside of North America that have proven not to be effective long term.
    Company morale is at an all time low across many business units.

    Advice to Management

    A successful business knows if they take care of their employees, their employees take care of their clients which in turn builds profit to satisfy their shareholders.
    Making decisions that negatively impact your employees may save money short term however, will cost the company more long term with turnover, loss of productivity and poor morale.

    Upper management has lost sight of the corporate goal too busy trying to be everything for everyone. Not committed enough to the simplicity of sales which is make a plan and stick with it for more than 120 day....

    Advice to Management

    Retire sooner than later. Get out of the way of the next generation. take a step into the modern world and pull your heads out of each other's back ends... would be a good start.
