    Pros

    The product is beautiful and well designed

    Cons

    1. The chief commercial officer for the Americas-Ed Teplitz is only concerned with numbers and not the employees. He is a awful person with no communication skills--he suggested to my mgr to fire some employees in order to receive a raise. This is the person leading the company. Unbelievable.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Ed Teplitz

    I worked at Natuzzi (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot of good employees. Insurance available.

    Cons

    No raises in over 9 years and salary cuts on top of that has lowered morale throughout the company. Negative atmosphere and oppression by upper management and Italian HQ.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good people work there. It would be nice to be compensated fairly for their work. Recognition for jobs well done would be appreciated.

    Hard to find something good to say.

    I worked at Natuzzi (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful furniture, great selection on line
    Covers most categories in furniture.

    Cons

    Sales Employees are of no value to the company, just drones for hire. Constantly being threatened of termination for not making their bar in sales while 8-10 people walk through the door each day.

    Very little training and true lack of leadership. Managers are more concerned about promoting rather than the needs of their employee needs to encourage and help them succeed.

    Managers are too busy finding projects for you to do which bogs down the sales people, whose priorities should be engaging and following up with sales, in stead of being their marketing managers.
