      Some great people but the company is plagued with incompetence

      Pros

      Some great people (but don't get me wrong , there's a LOT of bad people. Probably more bad than good) Free lunch Easy job

      Cons

      Very, very bad politics Intense, obvious favoritism at the top Most upper management favors sales because they're revenue generating but basically refuses to acknowledge any operations , infrastructure, etc. People for their contributions.

      Small company ruled by old white men

      Pros

      Free lunch as part of benefits

      Cons

      People really like to say that the company is family-oriented because that’s what you’re supposed to say. My co-worker once privately told me — yes, it’s family-oriented... similar to a gang. Unless you are part of the family (old white men), good luck fitting in or moving up.

      Pros

      Free lunch, nice office, great coworkers, fantastic product/brand, strong ties to the community and philanthropy with plenty of opportunities to volunteer.

      Cons

      Outdated technology, backwards structuring, low-paying, flat/little room for growth. Dead weight remains employed for 15+ years while everyone else does their work. Old school mentality.

      Pros

      -Some good changes happening now with new CEO -Free lunch -Nice people -Excellent products and colors to represent - the best on the market -Strong and recognized brand and company heritage -Good time off (around 18-22 days -including holidays- based on how long you have been here) and 5 sick days -Standard benefits package -Reasonable compensation -Good work/life balance depending on what team you are on/your work, and your manager -Berkshire Hathaway company -Company supports independent retailers, mom-and-pop hardware stores across the US

      Cons

      -A few really smart and driven people, but unfortunately more mediocre talent just here for the paycheck, not engaged or enthusiastic about anything -Outdated HQ, building is a mess -Long commute times / awful traffic (unless you live nearby) -Archaic technology - lack of effective digital tools, both in HQ and in the field -HR dept is sub-par when it comes to growth tracks, performance reviews and goals, employee retention, development, training, and engagement -Growth opps typically only present themselves during re-orgs and restructures, which are unfortunately frequent, but feel chaotic -Lack of role clarity -Bandwidth spread very unevenly across different teams and employees (high performers are buried and working overtime while under-performers are seen socializing every hour by the coffee machine then head for the door at 4:59) -Very inconsistent expectations and responsibilities for role levels across the organization (mgr, sr mgr, director, etc.) -Need improvement when it comes to diversity and women in leadership -High turnover in Mktg dept
