    - clarity of message regarding mission, vision, and culture

    Keep it up! Think out of the box, challenge the "we have always done it that way", look for new and innovative ways that increase efficiency and decrease waste.

    I worked at Hollister Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Company provides good benefits. One work from home day a week. Flexible hours during the summer to get off Friday earlier. Retirement is good but, 401k match is not. (Less than $500). Company is constantly making profit.

    Cons

    There is a lack of upward mobility. A lot of negative talk coming from management about other department managers sets a bad tone. You don't get recognition for stepping up outside of your job description which, kills motivation. Many people seem to fight against cultural change i.e.: still wear ties to work, don't take advantage of new work from home/flex hours. Management is not friendly to mid-level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take an active approach to get to know and recognize good employees. Good employees are leaving and bad managers are staying which, will eventually hurt the company.

    Pros

    Didnt feel it was a good company! People were bleek. The place is run by unexperinced staff. They are rushing yo put people in postions to cover the staff that had enough and left.

    Cons

    No professional development. Very dim outlook for employees. This company needs work. Unfortunate that this company lost its CORE values and morales.

    Advice to Management

    Look for people with experience and expertise. Dont hire because they are friendly and nice...stay with professional services.

    I worked at Hollister Incorporated full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family orientated company, large enough to offer the pros of working for a big company but with a mentality of taking care of its employees. Lots of promotion opportunities from within, very competitive salary. A very pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    Although there are lots of promotions availability the application process is lengthy and entailed.
    not a huge turnaround in workforce so although people are loyal and love working there they might become a bit complacent.

    Pros

    Very pleasant culture. People are polite and treat each other with dignity and respect. Mission driven. Arrogant people with self-serving personal agendas don't last long here. Everyone is united in their quest to deliver the customer with the best possible products and services. The pension plan is excellent and long term employees can retire early in a great financial position.

    Cons

    Very steeped in tradition. Can be slow to change. Rich pension fund means that people who should leave don't leave. Recently went business casual but still a lot of emphasis on appearances.
