    I have been working at K&G full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good learning experience and great industry to be in. For Atlanta this is a great buying office and on smaller scale compared to a New York buying office.

    Cons

    Not much movement in positions so lack of growth or chance of promotion. Paid Time Off accrues very slowly and location is traffic central.
