    Pros

    Great opportunity to see first hand what not to do...

    Cons

    If I don't see it or hear it...it doesn't exist...their motto hiding all the mishaps, disorganization , lack of skill, lack of process, lack of communication....but they have free breakfast! YA!

    Advice to Management

    Open door policy? Please... You are blind and running a biz overrun with blatant politics and inefficiency! My advice...add 'RUN! At the top of your job postings and front door! RUN far far away....FAST.

    Pros

    Nice, clean work environment. Gym.

    Cons

    This place is a shiny and bright on the outside that soon fades once you are settled in. The company "Culture" is all smoke and mirrors. Management is one big click who has no care for the lives of everyone else. They make poor decisions that negatively affect all the people working very hard to keep the business churning.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse and out of your money/number obsession. Start living the culture you preach. Invest in your people!

    Pros

    Hours are flexible. They really work with your schedule.
    Location- The Gift shop is inside the Georgia Aquarium which is in a word...Cool

    Cons

    Despite working at the aquarium you do not work FOR the aquarium so you have separate benefits than aquarium employees.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training employees

    Pros

    You work at the Georgia Aquarium. I guess it's a positive. Most of the customers are nice.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. You only get a 15 minute break. You're on your feet for six hours. This is a stop gap job. Retail work is too simple. Take the job if you like being a servant.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more
