    Pros

    Ver good company used to be. Now end of 2016 I don't think it will be around for too long.

    Cons

    The challenges are none because we lost so many customers due to the lack of leadership and the adquisición of an idiot warehouse manager.

    I worked at Southern Specialties full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It has so much potential. The brand is the only thing keeping the company moving. I gave it as many years as I could before I understood that there was no hope of resurrecting the company to the greatness it once was.

    Cons

    Lack of effective management, low morale, poor work-life balance, terrible attitudes, and an inept CEO. The company has so much room to grow, but it is stifled from within. The turnover is absurd. I have no idea how you can see 20 high level sales, warehouse, and support personnel leave and do nothing to address it.

    Advice to Management

    Look around you! You are navigating a sinking ship! There is no reason that you should not be rewarding the hard work that your employees put in. No raises, no bonuses, no promotions, constant issues with product. Morale is low, GREAT employees are leaving, and you are so concerned with what other companies are doing that you neglect your own. Step back, and right the ship!

    I worked at Southern Specialties full-time

    Pros

    The majority of the people here are nice. You don't really have to worry about getting fired unless you do nothing or make a careless mistake. Medical benefits are pretty good. Sometime you get free produce.

    Cons

    Where to begin! You only get 7 days of PTO and this is including sick time. You will not get any raise what so ever. No one seems to know what their job is. This place is worse than a revolving door. Over 20 people have either quit or were let go in 6 months. Human resources is a mess! They themselves have no idea what people's roles are. Morale is so low that people don't do their jobs right. The motto here is: do what you can. No one takes personal accountability. It is always blamed on the people who left. They rather hire people from outside that those within.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your most valuable asset. Treat them as such.
