Working in the Big Lots corporate office is pretty much like most corporate jobs. You spend more time in meetings that you'd prefer, some of the management is terrible, some is great. Lots of exciting things happening within the company with re-branding and the launch of the ecommerce website. I had good work/life balance and returning after maternity leave (no maternity leave benefits, just short term disability and FMLA) felt like my managers were flexible and understanding with me.
Since I've left, the company has a new corporate office and some new faces in the c-suite, so I can't speak to current culture.
cheap cafeteria, work/life balance, healthcare, benefits
no maternity/paternity leave benefits, some "old school" culture
