Pros

Company is forward thinking and encourages internal promotions.
Most benefits are great

Cons

Health benefits are rather pricey and don't offer good coverage

Advice to Management

Reconsider the health insurance offered to employees, it's very expensive and doesn't offer the best coverage available.

    Pros

    - Very competitive salaries
    - Nice home office

    Cons

    - Culture of fear
    - Low morale
    - Decisions by committee i.e. little empowerment
    - Terrible (and expensive) benefits
    - Best people are leaving for greener pastures
    - Clueless executive management

    Advice to Management

    - Constant short sighted, tactical decision making is driving the company into the ground; start thinking strategically or watch what little talent remains go out the door

    Pros

    I would work there because the managers offer invaluable feedback to help in future job situations. I appreciated all of the help.

    Cons

    The downside was the customers, they were discerning if that was the kind of store to be that way in.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more open to the new people that are coming in, they are new but they usually have something good to offer.
