Constructive Feedback from Employees

Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?

Sometimes. Especially bc of being the low man on the totum pole

Compensation review

CHS has one pay scale, and that is used in every market. It does not address market values. What works in Franklin TN might not work in Florida. Raises are usually 1%, and you are told you are lucky to get even that. Insurance is awful. No stock options, but CHS stock trades for ~$2 anyway...

Compensation review
What does the leadership team need to get better at?

Leadership needs to address core problems of business rather than browbeat employees about 'excellence'.
