    Pros

    Descent earnings for someone without a college degree. Good Benefits. Not stuck in a cubical.

    Cons

    Hope you like working on holidays. Hope you like waking up at 3:30 am.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to recognize good talent when you have it, and stop living up to some 50/50 ideological split of college recruits and home grown talent. It will leave and you are going to be left with an unproven "rookie" to grow your business.

    Pros

    Management is extremely focused on helping others grow within the company and making sure you learn from your mistakes in an effective manner.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive culture. Although you learn a lot, there is a lot of work needed to put into the process of success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Money, benefits, knew what to expect of the work that was tasked of you. Co workers were great people, even in a union environment. Overall it was a good job to have.

    Cons

    None really. I worked graveyard so that's the only thing I can think of that was bad but I actually enjoyed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Team Leads controlled the show, they answered to management

    Accounts that are impatient and insensitive to your work environment
    Accounts that are harsh and bully vendors
    Lack of advancement opportunities

    Be understanding of your sales team difficulties in selling in new displays and trying to merchandise product. It is a lot of work and makes the sales aspect of the job difficult to complete.

    Pros

    This company runs on results. Problem-solving, compromising for the greater good, and getting the job done, often in a team setting, are all expected, with above and beyond performance being the name of the game for upward mobility. All of this, coupled with way too much work to go around, provides lots of accountability early on resulting in rich experiences for growth and learning on the job. Cross-functional collaboration and interfacing provides a clear view of the business. Lots of engagement with other employees via non-business related "people" groups and activities, which count towards overall performance ratings.

    Cons

    This is a tough fit for those wishing to be career scientists. The money for testing and research is there, but the thirst for justification and business-relevance, along with the fast-paced timelines, may deter those seeking a relaxed laboratory-based environment. Some can't handle the diversity in personalities, along with some more stereotypical personalities in specific functions throughout the business, but that's life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow mid-level managers to execute their strategy the right way, don't squash good results with unrealistic timelines and iffy requests based on even more iffy insights.
