    Pros

    Okay pay, good benefits that are being eroded by cost-cutting, great retirement plan.

    Cons

    Managers are control freaks and hypocrites. Culture emphasizes constant "feedback" and correction, which can have exactly the opposite effect when you realize you can't ever do anything right. Work is mind-numbing with poorly defined responsibilities that shift constantly, depending on "business need" - any personal flair or individuality will be beaten out of you. Attitude is "fall in line or there's the door". Career growth opportunities or coaching are nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't really want to know what employees think, don't ask. Quit obsessing about silly details like phone scripts- focus on running the business, and let the "associates" handle the day-to-day work that you hired them to do. Live up to the fancy language you use to describe what your "vision" is, and your high opinions of yourselves - walk the walk.
