    I worked at Trinidad Benham full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ESOP is a great motivator to achieve sales goals.

    Cons

    Everything is a secret - upper management doesn't want to share happenings, sales results, etc. with the broader company.
    Very flat organization, no real room for growth & development.

    I have been working at Trinidad Benham full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    ESOP company with plenty of stability, good people in most of the locations. Good reputation with suppliers and customers.

    Cons

    Product assortment in declining/competitive market space will make growth challenging. Last two years of hiring and trying to develop mid-upper management in many departments have brought in lackluster talent with limited managerial/leadership abilities. Most of the worker bees are not motivated and there seems to be a lack of "fire" or desire to succeed. Very limited career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Was once a great place to be. Agree with another poster: Figure out who is really in charge and stop the in fighting at the top. Also, make sure you hire the right management team, some of these new hires in leader roles are sorely lacking in talent and people skills.

    I have been working at Trinidad Benham full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance at the corporate office is excellent; ESOP company and shares have been going up steadily; very easy work regardless of the area of expertise.

    Cons

    New CEO battling the old one who would not let go, causing ripples throughout the company; a lot of mid-level managers hired to solve issues who only care to excel themselves at a higher level; stagnation and rare advancement opportunities throughout; backstabbing at all levels, gossip inspired by a very fake HR department.

    Advice to Management

    It is understandable that with the new growth there are more challenges and the "old" traditional environment cannot be kept, yet pick better when choosing your mid level staff and take care to keep them balanced on a higher level.

    Pros

    Forwards thinking company.
    Management appreciates and rewards people that think and suggest positive change. An Esop company that does very well. Longevity pays large rewards because of this.

    Cons

    Persons with degrees even if unrelated May be chosen over more qualified persons without one.

    Advice to Management

    Look past the degree at the experience.
