Management can't stand the possibility of anyone knowing more than they do; unfortunately, since their knowledge hasn't been updated in at least a decade, and is very firmly rooted in the high street, bricks-and-mortar world, they spend a lot of their time attacking, undermining, and "managing out" anyone who actually could help move the business forward.
There's a lot of backstabbing, a culture of promoting people in order to prevent them leaving, rather than because they're actually competent, and a very closed-minded, "mates in it together" mentality.
The "new" Germany site is being stocked with discontinued items, and the management have no idea of German business practices.

People's contributions aren't recognised, yet one single "this isn't quite as good as we'd expect" will be sent out on internal communications to the entire company.
Most members of staff don't buy their personal tackle from the company, even with the staff discount, and there's an expectation that you'll spend your off hours "promoting the company" on social media, etc - without being paid for it.
You'll be told at interview about this dynamic, forward-thinking company, then find yourself working for a "flog it off cheap, run a sale every week, whack in a bunch of junk from China, and hope for the best."

Terrible management, no realistic vision for the future, run for the management, no one else.
