Pros

Flexibility, good management, understanding of work life balance

Cons

Gender bias in certain areas. Very political in order to get promoted even if your skill set exceeds that of the managers.

Advice to Management

Promote from within and assess skill sets and assign responsibilities accordingly.

    Pros

    They offer great insurance, profit sharing, stock options, pto, and comparable rates of pay.

    Cons

    they do NOT give raises based on productivity- they give one yearly raise, a set price across the board, therefore giving no incentive to do better and the ones who don't do their job get paid as much as those who carry the weight. They also only hire college students or degreed people for Mgmt.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the age of paying the employee who wishes to achieve greater expectations and sharing the wealth with those employees. Also, try promoting those of us to Mgmt. who are knowledgeable about retail and public relations. College students are not always your best and only choice.
