    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is feel that, Managers are more dominant, and they don't have experience to manage people in smooth way. Every where problems will be there, how ever Manager needs to avoid developing only one person in team. they should develop everyone in the team,

    Pros

    If you have no other option.

    Cons

    Constant downsizing of staff/distribution of increasing work to remaining staff is exhausting - management indifferent. Salaries frozen since 08 recession (even a 2% annual 'increase' is a joke). Job titles changed to avoid bonus payout to workers/ Bonus money still funneled to high paid Directors/Execs. 401k taken away to add more stress. If concerns voiced, told to get another job if you don't like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop fleecing what little company profits are made in a wholesale grocery business. Execs/CEO/COOs could take a $1M pay cut for just one year & avoid laying off 50 'head of household' workers. Stop using corporation to maintain millionaires' lifestyles & go back to purpose of companies - provide services/jobs/dividends to customers/employees/communities & shareholders.
