Pros

The Big N has an amazing promote from within philosophy (though we're starting to look outwards for fresh ideas), great opportunities for career grow, and a freedom to take chances and try new things while running your business. Certainly a fantastic culture in customer service and teamwork.

Cons

Typical 'water-cooler' politics which you'll find in any company you work for, larger than normal amounts of gossipping (that's retail for you), expectations inconsistent and varied, poor compensation for the amount of work delivered.

Advice to Management

Keep your head down and move humbly forward.

    Pros

    good environment, decent discount on everything including, great opportunity for hard workers who are full time.

    Cons

    commission sales, no hourly pay, co workers stealing sales when customers come back to exchange products, hard to make money on slow days, such as after a big sale. if you dont sell... you dont make money. pressure to open credit cards, and use mobile devices.
