Pros

Really awesome coworkers, good pay, fast-paced environment with great benefits (if you're full-time, not just working full-time hours), looks good on your resume, and opens a lot of doors if you know how to play your cards right and find whose ass to kiss.

Cons

Management is all over the place. It started out being about the customer experience, and then it became more about the numbers and sales. If you can't get numbers in sales, don't expect to get anywhere if you're working retail, regardless of what position you want. They only care about getting people in and out with the most expensive stuff. Oh, and they definitely don't care about you or how you express yourself. Be prepared to groom yourself to the standards they expect, even though the company is so-called "accepting of diversity."

Advice to Management

Give employees CONSTRUCTIVE criticism when they are seeking improvement or promotion. It does not help to be told "no" without "why."
