Pros

Working out of the HQ office was a wonderful experience and a great work environment. People are generally very positive and fun to work with. They love to live the brand and working out during lunch hour is totally normal and encouraged.

Cons

Compensation was low starting out. The only room for advancement is within the Pittsburgh office. Few opportunities elsewhere. Poor graduate program sponsorship.

Advice to Management

Increase compensation and rewards for employees. You have a great office mentality set up but you lose talent on the fundamentals of how much money employees bring home at the end of the day. Was the lowest paid salary when looking at offers out of college.

    Pros

    the relaxed environment is great, they really take it easy with their employees but still get the job done! my former manager Phil, was great because he was always understanding of the situation at hand. my coworkers were awesome too, even though there can be a lot to do, they were always willing to help. it can get busy but if you know how to prioritize that's not a problem at all.

    Cons

    the only thing that bothered me about working here really was the pay. that said, it's kind of to be expected because it's a retail job so eh.


  2. Learned a lot in a comfortable work environment

    Pros

    Work well with students/"second-job" employees, co-workers are willing to help out whenever they're needed

    Cons

    some policies are ambiguous, and customers certainly don't make life easy sometimes

    Advice to Management

    talent evaluation and communication should be addressed,
