Pros

-above market salary for retail positions
-a lot of autonomy for employees
-very clear policy and procedures
-management provides you with all the tools you need for the job
-supportive coworkers (for the most part)

Cons

-the work environment varies tremendously by store, some worse some better
-many senior managers are incompetent and do not set a good example for employees
-management often doesn't give rationale for their decisions
-uniform isnt comfortable at all - jeans and CSA steel toes
-performance appraisals are a joke. tend to be based on how liked you are rather than any quantitative measure of your performance
-most of advancement is through kissing up to management rather than having to do with skill or knowledge
-a lot of people end up working fulltime hours while being labeled part time associates and therefore are exempt from benefits dispite same contributions
-do not allow for any overtime hours

Advice to Management

work with the employees on the floor a little more rather than hiding in the office and stop dumping all your work on your associates
