    Pros

    You are working with some of the most driven individuals and learn a lot about core values of the company. Laid back when you do not worry about meeting goals. On-going online learning sessions.

    Cons

    Management over compensated for true value of work. Profits gradually sinking (hint*hint) Employee advancement opportunity is soley based on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not management if you are yelling at your employees that is baby sitting. Create a new retail environment to keep up with todays big hitters e.g. Apple, HHGreggs, AT&T, and Amazon.
