No longer a full of opportunity
Retail Dept. (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 29, 2016
There used to be a lot of upward mobility and some people were encouraged to "create their own position," but now the new management is making the tough decisions that probably would have kept the company out of bankruptcy had they been done years ago. Over inflated departments are downsizing, there are budgets, and people in higher position now have experience or training in their field. In the long run that is for the best, in the short run it means a lot of talent is being lost, not to mention unskilled employees who have worked hard. It's extremely demoralizing.
I don't know how the culture will change going forward, but getting a raise has been extremely difficult for a long time, unless you have some sort of "in." There is no regular review system and raises are rejected without any explanation even when employees have been loyal for years and only make minimum wage.
Also, the parking situation is a nightmare, a scene from Mad Max.
