    Pros

    Overall, I really enjoyed the people. I liked my boss at the time. However, she left unfortunately. I enjoyed my team at the time. It was the best work team I have ever experienced. Great camaraderie. But then everyone eventually left for better opportunities. I enjoyed my clients.

    Cons

    There was such a disconnect between the new upper management and our showroom. Also, the new showroom manager was horrible. She would change my sales quota in the middle of the month when it was all set at the end of the previous year. She gave away the food gifts that were given to the staff and put it out for the clients to eat. Who does that? Just to save a dime here and there. Moreover, she would berate us on the phone to upper management while we could hear her. She did not respect us at all. She clearly was all about covering herself and keeping her job. There were no checks & balances w/ this showroom manager. So she would just lie to upper management. She would also take credit for everything. Hence there were MAJOR reasons why I was urgent to leave as soon as possible.

    Advice to Management

    When a showroom has such HIGH turnover and all of the staff leaves one by one, then isn't that a big clue about where the problem lies. You really need to understand and ask the showroom teams what they need.

    I have been working at Robert Allen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I cant even think of anything..

    Cons

    Where do I begin?? Management.. awful, no raises in 10+ years, no bonus and benefits arent great. Id like to say the people here are great to work with but you really cant trust anyone. The management just tells you what you want to hear and things never change and probably never will. Constant hiring/ layoffs. Everyone is miserable and wants off of this sinking ship!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employess and the customers!
