    I have been working at Guitar Center full-time (more than a year)


    Great product discounts, laid back environment, and great for acquiring experience shortly after college


    Not much career growth and benefits are not that great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take bold approaches otherwise company will keep operating as non profitable

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
