    Pros

    Free coffee! Competent management. Systematically tackles issues. Compensation is fair. Cares about community involvement.

    Cons

    It's a Pawn Shop/Payday loan company. Culture seems conservative. Limited time off during holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more growth, communicate with the "Plebes."

    Pros

    The financial pockets that they have allow them to purchase smaller " mom & pop" businesses and turn them into thriving stars.

    Cons

    They are primarily a pawn based business and when you step away from what you know and try to reinvent the wheel, that's when you will fall

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with what has made you successful. When you take over smaller businesses, get to know that model before you try to change things.

    Pros

    - They pay on industry standard for the IT group any way.
    - Change in management has moved the company forward to getting back on track.
    - The company has a huge interest in the community and allows for volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    - Though there is a full suite of benefits, they are pretty lack luster. Had to pay the same amount for an emergency visit, that we did for an emergency hospital stay with another insurance.

    - Executive management does not allow for enough positions in the IT department and spreads the admins way to thin. Infrastructure is a heartbeat away from permanently crashing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beef up your IT department before the infrastructure crumbles and business comes to a grinding halt.

    Pros

    Hours were decent pay ok but they offer GREAT benefits. Work to life balance was good. Lots of pto, vacation and paid holidays. Lots of contests where you can ear extra money and they have bonus plans.

    Cons

    Upper management will try to treat you any kind of way and will more than likely get away with it. They will compliment you for a job well done but will take away the compliment and say you could have done better or what you've done wasn't so great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better district managers. Know the real person you're hiring... esp in GA.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Fun people
    hours are better than retail

    Cons

    Will have blackouts for holidays so no long holiday vacations. Also the pay is ok but there are so many different law s and rules you mess up, it doesnt end well. Also you will not ever have a 2 day weekend. No opportunity for overtime. Hard to move up in company.

    Pros

    Being able to facilitate change, sharing of new ideas and prospectives.

    Cons

    Unqualified supervisors, lacking resources to develop staff, as an organization they are unable to self identify their areas of opportunity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grasp on the flow of communication downward, on how other departments function, how the many different parts of the company operates in comparison, a culture change needs to happen.
