    I have been working at Raymour & Flanigan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A stable, privately owned and operated company, where leaders at the highest level, including owners, aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves and get things done. People are humble and real, and the list of associates who have been here 20+ years is long. Salaries are competitive and mostly performance based. Opportunities to grow and develop are everywhere if you express curiosity and a humble hard-working attitude. The Leadership Development Institute is second to none with 8 programs to go through. There are recognition programs and a yearly celebration where leaders and top performers are brought together at a resort, with entertainment and motivational speakers. The Goldberg family spends the holiday season traveling to cook omelets, pancakes, waffles and all the fixings for each of the 5300 associates who are invited to share feedback which is then utilized to impact change throughout the company. Benefits are cutting edge and prices have stayed the same or gone down on things like dental/vision, long term disability, and life insurance. Health insurance is low cost and the company gives us money in our health savings accounts. 401k and profit sharing are also very generous! What I love most about working here is that I am challenged daily to be a better person both personally and professionally. The work is not easy but the most rewarding things in life never are. As I look back on the 10 years that I have been here, I feel unbelievably grateful for the security and opportunities this position has provided me. I am lucky to work alongside many great people!

    Cons

    The company is fast paced and 24/7 which is good for company stability, but can be a difficult pace for the individual to sustain long term. Most people here thrive in this type of environment but everyone needs to take a break to recharge. Most lack of work life balance is self inflicted because the individuals here enjoy their work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to associates and customers and utilize the feedback to make the company better each day. Continue to walk the talk with your own work ethic and humble spirits. Never stop reflecting on what you can do better.

    Pros

    The culture is infectious, in the best way. Anyone looking to grow with experience, enhance your current skills, and be trained with new have an incredible opportunity with this company. You can begin entry level and work your way up as high as you can with hardwork, commitment to excellence, a self-driven work ethic, and an exceptional customer service attitude. The key is to make your role your own, bring your position to new heights, prove what you are capable of, be collaborative, innovative, and always give 100% to your boss and your co-workers. Bright futures are there for R&F employees.

    Cons

    I don't have much on this end to provide. I will say that "walking the talk" is a simple core value that has really great impact on this organization. When you fail to walk the talk, it can be damaging for some.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the best people I've come to know in the company were of management level or higher. Truly, truly, a talented group of inspiring leaders who have an infectious motivation that entices others to be their best every day. Without the fantastic LDI programs available, I'm not sure if talents would be used to maximum capacity. The executive level provides incredible support to managers and directors, who in turn treat their staff with respect, a high standard, and great trust.
