    -very long hours
    -no holidays-ever
    -no clear direction or focus (everything is a focus)
    -any mistake is viewed as failure
    -HR team doesn't really care about employees. They only care about metrics and making sure employees don't complain to higher ups.
    -Lack of diversity in personality types.
    -favoritism at all levels
    -Lots of company vales that are not enforced at the store and district level and causes low morale and credibility with the workforce
    -no room for creative thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. If you want the best talent running your stores you need to create an environment that competes with non-retail environments. The best and the brightest will not work 15 hours a day, dealing with the public and employees that make minimum wage while never being able to see their families on a holiday-ever. You need to give a little, and you will be able to retain a lot. And don't just have HQ send out some policy outlining expectations for work/life balance. GVPs and DTLs just ignore them if it concerns work/life balance because they think it is not realistic. HQ needs to validate they are getting what they are asking for.

    Pros

    Great program centered around the professional development around its employees, especially leadership.

    Cons

    As a leader, working long days are not uncommon, especially during the holidays because it's a retailer's busiest season.
