I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The new building and it's amenities are fantasic. The company has a great thing going with it's over all management and and direction. The benefits are fantastic. Health insurance is cheap, but great coverage, the bonuses are fantastic and average 15-20% (for all levels of employment and is based on company performance).

Cons

Software development is lacking and has only one director that has ever worked with Software before. The software development department refuses to follow any industry best practices because their mantra is "We are not IT, we sell gym shorts."

Minor gripe - Business casual dress code (IE No Jeans).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some management and staff that have developed or worked with software prior to coming to the company. Quit moving folks from the business (IE Sales and Marketing) into software development, especially the management staff.
