High Risk/High Reward career growth opportunity

Analyst (Current Employee)
Hoffman Estates, IL

ProsChallenging environment that will bring the best out of you. If you make it here, you'll make it anywhere.
Management tends to be candid with HQ employees; Acting CEO Johnson well respected in company. Morale seems high in spite of uncertain economy and retail industry.
Strong emphasis on management through rigorous analysis of results.
Management is paying serious attention to innovation.

ConsLack of capital investment: Aging stores/data systems/office equipment badly need remodels and upgrades.
Chmn/majority stockholder is a financier, not a retailer. Managers and employees wonder about long-term strategy for business.
Health benefits options a bit expensive

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company needs more investment at points of customer contact: Stores, associate training.
