    Like many of us, I have been WFH for almost two years now (and will continue for the foreseeable future). I use a standing desk and split time between standing and sitting, but my current chair just isn’t cutting it anymore. Being an avid golfer, I feel that my puffy, soft +$300 La-Z-Boy office chair that I purchased just year ago is doing more damage to my back than good. Looking for some recommendations on awesome ergonomic office chairs. Cheers!

      Pros

      Benefits, employee appreciation activities throughout the year, different events to participate in for charities, wages are comparable to other companies, generally a happy place to work.

      Cons

      Lack of training on specific tasks expected to be known before any experience within said task. Supposed to be open office concept, sit wherever you wish on any day but in reality departments still expect you to sit together, so you cannot maintain a desk but you are at the same one every day, not a big con...

      Review based on working for corporate owned lazboy

      Aug 26, 2021 - Interior Design Manager

      Pros

      - management works well with you - numbers driven - worklife balance ( but depends on management ) - potentional for money if you are in a good location - company cares about mental health - company 401k price match - weekends close earlier

      Cons

      - can be too flexible with employees - base pay is not enough for management during slow days - you have to be creative on how to generate leads in a slower store - micromanaging - unrealistic goals and expectations Example #1 compares goals from last year when last year there was a pandemic and reopening caused an increase of home improvement sales ( not comparing apples to apples ) Example #2 Compares a low imcome store location to a store locations thats in a higher income area - no growth company - HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND WARRANTY DEPARTMENT. Long wait times on phone. Techs are not professional and are late and cause people in sales too deal with all of it and possiblly lose out on their commission - they require management to train and maintain high numbers too and fix customer issues - system is super outdated. ( just now they are making customer updates AUTOMATED, for a company that's been in business for 90plus years and has a huge clientele I think they should placing systems that can automate things )

      Poor upper management

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Worked with some great sales people

      Cons

      No Inventory to sell yet expected to meet sales goals. Having to deal with customers daily that have been waiting months on end for orders that were promised to be delivered way before actual delivery date. Use to be a company that was always strong on quality, that has changed a lot, Upper management has no consideration for their employees. Flooding the sales floor with way to many sales people making it extremely difficult to make any money here. They also require their GMs at each store to be aggressivly working the sales floor. How does it make any sence to pay a GM a salary of 70 or 80K a year and then have them taking sales away from someone making 13.00 per hour and 2% commission? Thats right, 2%. A wopping 20. 00 for every 1000. you sell. Most sales take a minimum of one hour and the average price on a chair ids usually between 500. and 1000. If the company really wants to get quality employees they will need to have a little more consideration for their sales people.
