    Pros

    nice office and decent location (but no parking). the home collection is beautiful.

    Cons

    mid and senior management must have gotten jobs by luck or human resource laziness. most talent is smothered out before staff can be promoted. gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit before someone wakes up and fires you. stop copying other businesses a year after the trend dies.
