    I have been working at Orchard Brands full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel valued and appreciated here. The work/life balance here is more than fair and flexible work arrangements are common. Some complain about long hours but I simply don't see it. There's a gym and lockerroom just for Orchard Brands employees (free), which is great.

    Cons

    Pay is about average to slightly below average but I think this is about as good as you can do as far as the pay to stress ratio goes. As this is a small company, career paths aren't obvious but management does a good job promoting from within and ensuring that employees see a lot of different things if they stay a while.

    Advice to Management

    More 401K matching would be great. Tuition reimbursement would be even better.

    Pros

    Great work environment, solid benefits. Businesses spread across the country in a number of different markets. Business has made a spectacular recovery from bankruptcy and is flourishing.

    Cons

    Different locations of the company do sometimes makes it difficult to standardize and centralize common functions. Lots of work has been done to get that accomplished, but still more to do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path of building one company from the five or six different locations. Lots of great work done already but much more opportunity as the company becomes one.

    I worked at Orchard Brands full-time

    Pros

    Great location and some really nice people.

    Cons

    Pay is just okay, and newer investors/owners let a lot of people go and set some pretty aggressive goals, to the point where they were basically unattainable.

    Advice to Management

    To the new ownership: value the people that are left. They are working harder than any people I've ever seen!

    I worked at Orchard Brands full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This used to be a good company to work for, but that's all changed in the last year.

    Cons

    Performance reviews and raises are virtually non-existent. Management style is non-supportive, blame-based and abusive. Management takes credit for employee successes and blames them for projects that go badly resulting from insufficient support from management. Senior management is untouchable and everyone else is expendable. There is no loyalty or commitment to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time communicating with the staff and empower them to be successful.

    I have been working at Orchard Brands part-time

    Pros

    There is no strict dress code. Also this is a sitting job

    Cons

    The sales quota is outrageous, majority of customers are difficult

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the work done by employees and call quality, not so much on sales.
