    I worked at Larson-Juhl

    Pros

    The benefits are decent. Health , dental and life insurance are an option which they pay more of the premium than you. There is also 401k and disability. There are employees that truly care about their work performance and the company. I believe they are trying to make changes for the better. I am just not so positive that they know how to or where the problems actually exist.

    Cons

    The company has values that everyone is supposed to abide by, but management seems to be exempt from this. There is an awful lot of favoritism where jobs, positions, overtime and approval of time off is concerned. There seems to be a problem with hiring and training the right managers for their position. High turn around of management which creates low moral in the facility. There are many promises made at the interview...

    I worked at Larson-Juhl

    Pros

    Company has deep pockets and is run by some very talented and motivated individuals who are not afraid to take risks.

    Cons

    Their main industry is declining at a rapid pace. They are the leader in their business but growth is only by gaining market share from others.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of educating consumers about the benefits of custom framing order to cultivate customers for the future.

    I worked at Larson-Juhl

    Pros

    Employees get great deals on picture framing! Full time employees are eligable for profit sharing, and the benefits are great. There are many positions to choose from and it's easy to move around from department to department if you aren't happy working where you are. Some of the various positions include: miter saw operation, picture frame joining, touch up, picking and packing, shipping, delivery driver, picture framer...

    Cons

    They pay isn't great, and it's hard to get a raise. It was hard to keep staff around, I feel it was partly because they were underpaid and also unappreciated. There needed to be more focus on creating a team and making the staff feel proud of the company they work for.

    Advice to Management

    LJ should develop a training/policy manual for all employees that is used at all branches in Canada and even the US.
