Advice to ManagementAdvice

I worked at Hot Topic for about three years total and I loved every minute of it. The only reason I left was because of pay. Other than that, I was completely happy.

    Pros

    No dress code, open environment, lots of great people, on site ATM, gym, cafe, great benefits, chiropractor, physician's assistant, etc.

    Cons

    Many of the management team people have been let go and replaced by new people that I'm not sure what their vision for the company is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that have been there for a while. They have good information and are open to new ideas and feedback.
