Suggestions for improvement
- More open issue discussion, more women in senior management at the chairman's group.
What I like about the company
My coworkers, for the most part. They made coming to work bearable.
What I dislike about the company
Sexist management culture with very few women in corporate management. Lack of bureaucracy means virtually no input from employees. Level of secrecy at decision making level is beyond paranoid. Communication about anything other than the most obvious of management changes is virtually non-existent. Lots of favoritism clear in company hires, whose family knows whom, nepotism in promotions and overly tolerant of long-term employees who are abusive and obnoxious. This is a highly stressful environment for corporate employees, and totally different from the individual store environment.
