A Case of Lost Identity

I worked at Burlington Coat Factory full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPeople are nice.
Good place to learn

ConsConflicting, changing direction from upper management. Lack of Systems and departments that dont communicate. the company is confused as to what they want Burlington to Represent to the consumer.

Advice to Senior ManagementDetermine identity, formulate a detailed plan, communicate it to all levels.
Be realistic
