    Pros

    Hard work pays off. Good compensation with fair reviews. Upper management is committed to making the company a 100 best company.

    Cons

    Overly critical managers. Software systems can be limiting and cause long waits for reports. Registers in stores have challenges. Hopefully they will get fixed.

    Advice to Management

    It's great that management are hands on. I can ask any question and get an answer with detailed explanations.
