Fun place to work but suffers in leadership

I worked at GameStop full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Fun place to work. Very hip and HR does a very good job of providing events and activities througout the year (like custume contests, video game release parties, etc). Very fiscally conservative.

Cons

Leadership at the time I was there was not in touch with reality. They tried to provide a vision people could get behind but execution was not there. E-commerce, where I worked, was fun but the senior management that was in place when I was only interested in justifying their existance. A bit slow to adopting new technology and communication channels

    Pros

    Health / Dental benefits
    401k
    Discount on new and used software

    Cons

    No work / life balance and upper management no longer trusts store managers to run their locations. Expect heavy micro-management and inconsistent / unrealistic expectations.
