    Pros

    Decent promotion process if you contribute.

    Pay is slightly above average.

    Great people to work with and the enjoyment of seeing them develop.

    Cons

    Hourly employees are underpaid.

    Back and forth decisions on company policies.

    No communication from corporate.

    Not enough positive reinforcement.

    Poor work/life ratio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest a little more money in the part time associates and you would see much less turnover. Hiring and training new associates every two weeks does not let the management focus on other issues.

    Pros

    Summer hours and work from home 1 day a week.
    Domestic Partner benefits.

    Cons

    Manager with terrible leadership skills and poisonous style is allowed to continue in same role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How many employees have to quit or ask to be transferred out of the same department before a director is removed? Apparently more than half a dozen is not the threshold. Ridiculous.
