Teammates, peers, and benefits package are all pretty top notch, but Digital Leadership can use improvement.

E-Commerce Developer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Finish Line full-time

Pros401k match, talented colleagues, great environment to learn in, and great facilities. Very laid back at the Boulder location. Employees can pretty much come and go as long as they get their work done.

ConsPace of getting things done can be a bit slow sometimes. Leadership attrition has been poor the past year. There is little emphasis on intra-office processes. Leadership doesn't realize the importance of a strong foundation as it pertains to the codebase.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou can't go full speed 100% of the time. Sometimes you need to stop and spend time on things that will save you time, and therefore make the company more money, in the long term.
