    Je travaille chez Central Garden & Pet à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    They have one. Ask about company-wide participation.

    Inconvénients

    All years I've worked here, I've been restricted to the amount of pretax income I can contribute to my plan. I can only contribute drastically less than the the full $17k.

    November 24, 2015Director of Talent Acquisition

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The IRS regulates how much employees over a certain salary can contribute to their 401k each year, which is impacted by the number of total employees who are enrolled in the plan. If you would like more information on this, you may ...

    J'ai travaillé chez Central Garden & Pet à temps plein plus de 8 ans

    Avantages

    Some staff are very kind

    Inconvénients

    No growth, ever. Senior Management is continually fired or quits as a result of micromanagement of founder/chairman. Some very senior roles are occupied by drones looking over their shoulder. The rest are petty tyrants. Central never gives full bonuses to their management. Merit increases are 2 percent or lower. It's very difficult to motivate staff when they are given an A plus review and a D- salary increase.

    Conseils à la direction

    How about picking a strategy and sticking with it? How about joining the 21st century and have decent web sites for your products (or if that's too hard, the late 20th century)? How about running the company less like a medieval fiefdom and more like a contemporary publicly traded company? How about taking all the paperwork off the chairman's desk and giving it to the people that are skilled in making decisions in...

    Avantages

    As long as you are of the "FAITH" you will fit in.

    Inconvénients

    SPYING, LYING and downright dirty ways of running a company. If you do everything right your rewarded with being terminated without any warnings or negative write-ups EVER!!!

    Conseils à la direction

    You should realize that if it WORKS then you don't need to fix IT.

    Avantages

    Great people who work here. Benefits are mediocre/less than mediocre but they are available. Great place to step your career into the right direction but only a stepping stone, no more than a year or two.

    Inconvénients

    Not a positive work environment with no business plan, no core values, and no growth plan. The people who work here are really good people, but the management has 'ruled' in a way where no employee wants to make a decision. If one does make a decision and is wrong, they are basically shunned in front of the company. This didn't happen to me.

    Conseils à la direction

    Empower your employees to make decisions to grow the company.

    Je travaille chez Central Garden & Pet à temps plein depuis plus d'un an

    Avantages

    Central Garden & Pet did offer me the title I required to move up in the CPG world but that was about the extent to the pros of this company.

    Inconvénients

    The lack of a consistent corporate strategy and vision of growth, innovation, and decision making skills make Central a disorganized, chaotic, and frustrating place to work. If you are an outgoing person who strives to grow in your position, grow your category, and enjoy the feeling of success, then Central is NOT the work environment for you.

    Conseils à la direction

    Develop a consistent corporate strategy and common vision of growth for both the Pet and Garden sides of the business that all business units and employees can be excited about. The dissatisfaction of senior management has negatively impacted morale, and has resulted in good people leaving or trying to leave the company.

    Avantages

    Multiple locations so depending on the function, you could find a Central location that is close to you

    Inconvénients

    No exposure to the higher level strategy and company direction, lack of business ownership, strong level of micro management, unclear processes, lack of 360 feedback and clear actionable steps to help improve and develop

    Conseils à la direction

    More transperency with regards to growth strategy and the company direction
