    I have been working at Coldwater Creek full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason I worked here is that it gave me an opportunity to work exclusively as a remote support technician. I enjoyed the shift I was scheduled to work when I had 4 consecutive 10 hour shifts and then 3 days off.

    Cons

    No raises had been given in the last 7 years or so and, while working there, the company went bankrupt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that those higher up in the company know what's going on at ground level.
