Pros

They want to promote people. They work hard to get employees, who show interest, into management positions.

Cons

You have to be willing to move all over the country for your entire career. This is ok if you don't need to be near any friends or family or if they can move with you for the next 30 years. You can not stay in one position for too long and most promotions lead to Seattle and then back out to any store manager position in the country.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees who are succeeding in their current role and want to stay should be encouraged to do so. Bringing more "corporate" type roles to each region will help with how long employees will stay with the company.
