    I have been working at Dick's Sporting Goods full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is growing by leaps and bounds. There are a lot of assistant management opportunities.

    Cons

    Very stressful job as a manager. Leadership staff continues to micromanage the store level and set ever changing stretch goals for management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to value your management staff and continue to develop and promote your managers. Very high turn over has been caused by overworking and underappreciating store level management.
