Reviews about "upper management"Return to all Reviews
- 5.0Sep 15, 2014Store ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsBristol, VA
This company has an amazing culture that is hard to find and has great values! There is a lot of opportunities to grow and develop. Upper management is always asking for feedback from all positions and they work hard to recognize all employees at every level.
Because of District manager changes I have found it hard to establish myself with a person in upper management to support my career development.1

Was a great work life balance. I attended college while working here part time as an assistant manager. great company culture and motivational tactics.
too many bad hires in management and upper management. most of the people I was forced to work under were very catty and immature, sometimes creating a really negative environment.1

Great benefits for full time employees including health coverage and compensation such as PTO, sick time and holiday pay, as well as bonuses if you make your sales month. Upper management is also very supportive and always asks what they can do to help.
I don't have any cons of working here.

Maurices fosters an environment in which to grow and succeed, while learning a great deal about yourself and the company!
Sometimes upper management can be blind to what is truly going on within a certain store.

-benefits -discount at 7 other companies - Co workers and multiple connections over the US -Lots of training materials to ensure you know policies and procedures. -incentives -bonus structure
-Learning all the materials but no growth opportunities -growth model severely outdated and expectation is to follow these and make the changes. -lack of support from district leaders and up -lengthy tenure of upper management develops into personal relationship versus being objective to all situations. -the practice of the promoted work life balance is consistent from leader to leader. -lack of communication from corporate to stores or delayed communication resulting in extra work. - Limiting pay to those who deserve extra and raise increases have been limited for over 4 years.1

*Room for advancement beyond store level of relocatable. *Great place to work if you love fashion. *Can be open and honest with most upper management. *Managers only work 40 hours a week. *Company tries to keep the atmosphere fun.
*The expectations set feel nearly impossible to attain. *Standards are set VERY high and if not met, it will likely cost you your job regardless of the circumstances. *The company continues to change things and not for the better as far as the field associates are concerned. *Stores are not given enough hours to keep a full staff. Part time staff can usually only get 10-12 hours at most unless they are a part time manager and then its about 18-20. *Have changed the review structure in the middle of the year for the last two years. Was told in August that it was on a point structure. You earn points towards your rating. In February was told that the only way to get a positive review is to make the goal they set for your store. *I use to feel like I could run my store by making decisions based on what I felt was best for my store, but recently we have been given standard operating procedures that cannot be deviated from. It feels a lot like micro managing that not everyone needs. Company prides itself on claiming work/life balance because they only have you work 40 hours but if you have a family, your working when your family is at home as your not allowed to come in more than 15-30 minutes before the store opens(usually10). That means to get an 8 hour day in, you're there until 6 or 6:30. Doesn't leave a whole lot of room to make it to activities, etc.10
