    Pros

    GameStop has a great environment, the cafe' provides a wide variety of options and makes eating very convenient, there is great opportunity for growth, and above all it is a friendly fun environment

    Cons

    You have to get to work early in order to have a great parking spot, otherwise it's a good walk and the weather really plays a factor when you are walking from BFE

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    You get to wear jeans everyday. There is a discount of 15% on used consoles and games. That's about it.

    Cons

    Director's social shortcomings manifesting themselves on reviews. If you're not a brown-noser, you won't make it. They retaliate by firing if someone goes to Employee Relations with a legitimate issue. Don't waste your time. Take your knowledge and skills elsewhere, someplace they will be appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    To truly, "Protect the family," you have to take positive action for the associates - not negative actions and just say that you are helping.

    The only good reason was to share same family car to go there.

    Cons

    Not respect for others, not constant duties, don't bother to explain what you suppose to do in your job to many changes in 2 weeks so you can get in track

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to peoples behavior, to many aggressive people. No respect for each other.

    Pros

    Overall good place to work. Pay is good for the work performed. Likes to promote from within.

    Cons

    Sometimes upper management seems disconnected from the operation & thorough planning of new processes is seldom thought out.

    Advice to Management

    Plan out new processes instead of implementing them and working out bugs as they come across.
