    Thank you for the great review. Growth may be limited in smaller locations but with over 40 locations in the US, there are opportunities if people are willing to move.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 5 Jahren bei Central Garden & Pet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Very supportive internally. Not competitive. Everyone wants you to succeed. Family is first. Small company - so you're expected to go outside the norms of your job... which I love as every day is different

    Kontras

    Small company feel, but public company. Therefore, dynamic to corporate is sometimes stressed as they do not know (or do) the best thing for the business

    Rat an das Management

    See cons - Invest in the business.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei Central Garden & Pet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    They have one. Ask about company-wide participation.

    Kontras

    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.

    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 talk to your HR Partner or refer to the the IRS website.

    Ich habe für mehr als 8 Jahre bei Central Garden & Pet gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Some staff are very kind

    Kontras

    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.

    Rat an das Management

    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 their area of expertise? If adopted, any one of these suggestions could prevent the inevitable excuse during the annual shareholders meeting of, "We had a challenging year because of grain prices and weather conditions" delivered by the soup (CEO) du jour.

    Pros

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

    Kontras

    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!!!

    Rat an das Management

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

    Pros

    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.

    Kontras

    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.

    Rat an das Management

    Empower your employees to make decisions to grow the company.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Central Garden & Pet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    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.

    Kontras

    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.

    Rat an das Management

    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.

    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei Central Garden & Pet als Vollzeit gearbeitet

    Pros

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

    Kontras

    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

    Rat an das Management

    More transperency with regards to growth strategy and the company direction
