Pros

Generous discount on certain items, lots of ways to improve product knowledge, and generally good people at your own level to work with.

Cons

Micromanagement by the senior leaders to the point where when you walk in the door you have one of them on you to do something before you even punch in. A focus on sales numbers that put a commissioned based position to shame. Management being so self absorbed to think that they are the most important person. Management pulling you off of a sale to help in a department that isn't your current area.

Advice to Management

Decide what is more important: numbers or employees.

    Pros

    Enjoy working with a great team who is passionate about technology. Also, the employee discount is very good! They are pretty good about adjusting your schedule or having a consistent schedule from week to week.

    Cons

    Lacking of compensation and lack of moving up in the company. I believe the training could be a bit better, maybe pay for some key certifications.
