Pros

Employee oriented, work environment is structured towards taking care of the individual associate.
Associates may use the open door process with any member of management without fear of reprisal.
Everyone benefits from the efforts of the group if the store is profitable a bonus is given to all associates.
Good benefits package but better 401k and stock sharing for all employees
Good place to learn merchandising and sales practices.

Cons

Company needs to improve in training for managers not just outside hires. Training in technology, operations and area specifics need to be improved.
Better communications between home office (HO) and front line managers on programs being implement throughout the company. This communications should be across the board in all divisions.
Better pay and compensation for assistant manager, as job descriptions are change to encompass more responsibility compensation should increase along with it.
Better evaluation system for managers and improved career tack which will allow career progression faster and in more directions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revamp the managers career path, progression and pay structure.

    Pros

    Great at accomodating family responsibilities-starting pay is great-great yearly bonus-if you kiss tush, you'll get great promotions-a very team work atmosphere-the member comes first

    Cons

    Raises are terrible, management over looks hard workers for promotions based on who their favorites are, too many chiefs and not enough Indians so to speak, the teamleads and associates run that store and are constantly instructing the managers on how to do their job, or the managers are so lazy the teamleads just do their work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give fair raises and reviews, even if that means you have to do extra work by giving a second review in a few months for those that are not meeting expectations. LEARN AND DO YOUR JOBS! the Teamleads are not there to be your door matts, they have their own responsibilities to take care of.
