    I worked at Winmark full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great medical benefits. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Management want you to keep silent. I witnessed bullying and sexual harassment. I also saw people who tried to bring attention to it, were fired or pressured to quit. Substandard performing employees treated same as hard workers. Hard workers were given even more work, while lazy people continued being lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat people the same....they aren't. Reward and recognized hard workers and stop coddling non-performers. Put your ego in check and really listen to the opportunities in the company. There are great ideas but employees know what will happen if they speak up

    Pros

    Exceptional co-workers. Great parking and well maintained office environment.

    Cons

    You will not be able to start a family or have a balance of family and work. Benefits were reduced and increased in cost. Micro management allows senior level managers to drop their workloads on lower management. You must be in agreement with senior level management at all times. Major travel and they were looking to reduce benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You can't give advice to a group that doesn't want it.
