    I worked at Central Garden & Pet full-time

    Pros

    Easy job. Pay is not bad. Everyone leaves on time. If you have given up on learning new and advancement in technology, this is the place for you!!

    Cons

    It is a public company, yet, the founder has all the votes, and his favorites stay in the high up positions. Bad mouthing and gossipping are almost encouraged here. Awful management. Back stubbing culture. 10 days of vacation for the first 5 years. Super old school. Business casual required except Friday. Paper, Paper, and Paper!!! Working remotely is probably decades away.

    I have been working at Central Garden & Pet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I always find it interesting how the anonymity of the internet seems to produce such negative stuff that is never representative of the whole. It's unfortunate that one or two disgruntled employees can make an entire place look bad. I absolutely LOVE it here. The management team are down to earth and caring human beings. I feel valued and appreciated for the work I do and I hope to stay here the rest of my... career!

    Cons

    The company as a whole is very complex and segmented so it can be a bit difficult at times especially when trying to learn at the start - it can be a steep learning curve. But for people who like a challenge and always looking for ways to do things better, this is the place!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and know that what you do matters to all of us!

    Pros

    Local company with great brands. Smart, dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Advantages of brands over competition is not marketed. Mass confusion as to direction of the company. Overall non-cohesive and competing divisions.

    Cons

    They could use more in classes to help motivate employees, maybe motivational speakers, classes to teach others how to get along and communicate better. They could have a little better PTO system. Maybe combine their sick pay into PTO and have more vacation time open.

    Advice to Management

    Management there is great, they work hard at motivating teams, training and helping employees to move up.
