    I worked at Fry full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people. Interesting and fairly diverse clients. Plenty of work that tends not to be monotonous. A history of e-commerce leadership.

    Cons

    High attrition due to a change in culture. Parent company, Micros-Retail is imposing old-style corporate-think that expects equipment to be more valuable and irreplaceable than talented employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People need to be invested in. If you wish to have any standing in e-commerce you need to be able to capitalize on new technology and rapid projects. Invest in product development processes and try to keep up with industry-standard software and tools.

    I have been working at Fry

    Pros

    The organization is flat, work environment is friendly and casual. Compensation is good and the nature of work allows plenty of room for creativity.

    Cons

    Flat organization means lesser opportunity to get big promotions and climb the corporate ladder. Some times, unrealistic deadlines communicated to the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management needs to do a better job with Accounts and setting client expectations. Management also needs to put a greater focus on product rather than just delivery.
