    Pros

    The hours, flexible schedule, weekends off and paid holidays, down to earth management, cool
    people to work with but after you become an operator there is no other way to advance...

    Cons

    They cut all of our raises and bonuses, they cut out ALL of our overtime as well so we barely get out 40 hours....

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees and stop being so judgmental, give raises because everything is goin up except our pay, pay more attention to the issues instead of the silliness....

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Its a great place to work for individuals who love cigars and working with customers. In-store management is both competent and friendly, but corporate leadership and direction is lacking with regards to the retail enterprise.

    Cons

    For sales associates, there is little opportunity for advancement. But, management is committed to its employees, some of whom have worked there for decades. In addition, a struggling economy and anti-smoking campaigns have taken a bite out of sales - and in turn, commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Senior corporate management could benefit by listening to employees - many of whom have excellent ideas regarding how to improve operations and sales in the retail enterprise.

    I worked at Nat Sherman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Sherman Family are very caring about their employees, making sure they we feel like part of their family. Better than average pay and good bennies/insurance.

    Cons

    Absurd level of micromanagement by middle management echelon.

    Advice to Management

    They should pay MORE attention to suggestions/input from field reps, LESS preoccupation with emulating the industry majors.
