    I have been working at J&R Music and Computer World full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very casual work environment, made it easy to come to work every day. Also, surrounded by lots of experienced and talented people.

    Cons

    They tried a bit too hard to grow out of the "small store" mentality into something more corporate. With little planning, that didn't really pay off at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Next time, stick to what you're really good at and let someone else try all those other side businesses.
