    I have been working at Central Garden & Pet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flat management Let you make decisions Supports ideas Willing to take chances REALLY care about employees Flexible on working from home periodically. Small company business model in a medium size company Very fiscally sound

    Cons

    Lean company Not a lot of resources (this has been a benefit for me)

    Advice to Management

    Create an Employee Stock Purchase Plan for all levels of management.

    I worked at Central Garden & Pet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay. Laid back. Just a handful of co-workers, really you could go the entire shift and not speak to anyone.

    Cons

    14 hour shifts... and mandatory OT?! Holiday season was horrible. They were asking us to work 16 hour shifts and I was night shift. I was not able to get enough rest. And only getting 2 days off working those ridiculous shifts was absurd. Managment didnt show any appreciation for the long hours we put in. No compassion or understanding. We arent robots. They also did not follow their own policies. I was late twice and...

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own company policies! You should also get to know your employees and be available more than just at the beginning of shift when you have your little performance talks and let folks know they have to work OT
