Pros

Retail is a less then desirable field but its nice to find a company that makes the field easy to live in. Great benefits for a retailer especially in a time when most are cutting benefits to save money.

Cons

Retail is retail, hours are long and change every week. Review is for the retail division, opportunity to advance is rare. Recruitment focuses outside the company not at promoting within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When possible set hours helps especially if you can. Not giving a set schedule just because you don't want them to get used to it.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance is better than other tech companies though no ideal. Additionally there are people around who are willing to spend crazy amounts of time at work which hurts others having a more balanced life.

    Cons

    It is hard to determine how your performance is reviewed
