    Pros

    Great location and clothing discounts. 50% of product for yourself 20-30% off everything else. Healthy work environment and supportive in career changes.

    Cons

    Work becomes predictable. Overly female environment not many men in the work force this could be a plus for some. Sometimes expectations are not clearly defined and are overly complex causing a lot of rework. The Brand image is suffering feels like the brand is over the hill but is trying to cling to its hay-day of the late 90s although styles and market place have changed. Causes a lot of confusion when target market and goals change too frequently. Systems and tools are antiquated or cumbersome and most often you are not given all the resources necessary to complete a typical task.

    Advice to Management

    Company is top heavy too many VP, EVP, Presidents in the mix and not enough workers. One president can easily pay for 10 entry level positions.
