Pros

Excellent employee discount if you do a lot of outdoor stuff.

Cons

Pay isn't too great and the current economy won't help. If you're only looking for a short job, it would be fine. Don't look for long term growth in the retail sector, especially with a company based off of people extra money.

Advice to Management

Some managers are much more apt at leadership than others.

    great company with a mission, awesome senior management, people who care about customers, the prodeals!!!

    Cons

    little chance for promotions unless you want to stay for a long time, scrimps on stuff like technology & then wonders why its behind the times

    Advice to Management

    Think ahead, be willing to take more risks
