Pros

Salary and bonus's are pretty good. Employee discount of 10% which is nice.

Cons

They preach "work life balance" where in reality you are expected to work unrealistic hours. Healthcare insurance horribly expensive and huge out of pocket expense with very high deductibles. Very political, if you can't talk a good game and build relationships in high places to further your own career then you may not fit.

Advice to Management

Old Management, just because you have been there for over 20 years doesn't mean you are a leader or providing anything positive to the growth and stability of the company. Believe it or not people below Director level have good ideas too. The definition of Mentoring or Coaching does not mean beating people down to build them up. It is unethical to require (or expect with retaliation if not) participation in charitable contributions that come out of your salary. People are watched and belittled for their contributions or desire not to contribute. Giving should come from the heart not because it is career limiting not to.

    Pros

    Opportunity for quick advancement, flexible schedule (worked with and around my school schedule), clearly defined policies and procedures, associate discount after 90 days of employment (10%)

    Cons

    Strict and unorganized attendance policy, favoritism where scheduling and promotions were concerned, severe lack of training - more often than not they put you on the sales floor with little to no training, no / poor benefits depending on one's specific job (full time vs part time)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates. Treat them like people and value them as the important part of the business that they are. They are not disposable.
