Pros

much younger, and more vibrant than Deerfield. Most people in marketing had some type of agency background

Cons

like any huge, older company, it's all about bureaucracy. Promotions weren't really based on quality of work or value added to the company but rather office politics. If you're young but hard working and smart, too bad. You won't get promoted if there are older people on your team who've been working there longer than you.

Advice to Management

Take advantage of your location and take care of the younger talent you're able to get because of it.

    Pros

    Managers are willing to work with you and your schedule, full shifts (6-8 hours each), I have a great manager who is amazingly understanding. Truck is always fun to work on, at least at my store. I love my co workers and have a good time at work.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is no communication between management, my only big con is working a shift up at the front; it's hard being confined to one little area for so long; I love the freedom of moving around in Red Zone.

    Advice to Management

    Communication between management is a MUST
