    Pros

    The company is growing and every day has new challenges to offer

    Cons

    There are no mature processes and therefore lots of chaos/tribal knowledge on how things happen; getting almost anything done is a struggle. There are tons of dead wood throughout the organization who are only trying to keep their paychecks coming in.

    Salaries are very weak and benefits are an afterthought. Bonuses and raises do not reflect performance ratings. Company matching contributions to 401k require one year of service for eligibility and are only paid annually in March, what a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Step into the 20th century with your benefits. If your not going to pay people what they're worth, at least open up eligibility for what little you do offer.

    Start clearing out the people who have been in place for so long they've grown roots; they're killing the performance of anyone who has a clue.

    Basically: grow-up. You're a big company now, start acting like it.

    Advice to Management

    Look more into achieving resuls than ways to deflect blame.
    Thing should be done for the good of the group rather than protecting your own turf.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the the flexibility, especially as a young student. Depending on the manager, he/she hires a fair number of people within your department and you can go to school, work and have a personal life. I was fortunate and worked with wonderful people. That can change quickly though.

    Cons

    As a young woman I was disappointed with the departmental placement with my talents. I was placed in the apparel department (as was most of the young women). Working with mostly guys has its good and difficult aspects in a sporting goods store.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to any young student is work hard but do not give your life to the company.

     I saw a wonderful gentleman who worked in the golf department and supported his family that way lose his job because the company decided to rid the department of having golf pros. The regional manager told the managers not to notify the golf pro till the day before he was let go. Extremely heartless and disappointing.

  10. Good Customer Service and Sales Experience

    Pros

    The store mangers are great. The other cashiers and floor people were great too. Great people made the job easy and fun even during the busiest days. Working with relatively young managers is different from other retailers, and is much appreciated.

    Cons

    Every retail job has the same cons and DSG is no different. No problems with the company or the workers, it's only the customers who I'd have any complaints about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to reward employees that stand out.
