    Pros

    Some very good people Reasonable discount Iconic brand Reasonable work life balance

    Cons

    Appalling placement of people in IT "management" positions Complete lack of follow through or accountability from said "managers" Zero agility in projects Low aptitude for proper collaborative thought Very much stuck in an "us" vs "them" mentality with vendors. "managers" who would rather read joke books or sit on Facebook during stakeholder decision meetings... A culture of say one thing in a meeting, then knife the person outside of the meeting Throwing under the bus is a common skill set and it appears the more you can do that the further you'll advance

    Advice to Management

    Clear the decks in IT. I could give Umbers a list of who will stop the company from progressing. Get rid of them then build the core with energetic thinkers who love to take accountability, then release the shackles a bit to let them transform a sinking revenue line into a potentially bright future. Let the same rotten eggs continue to run the way they are and the place is doomed.

    Advice to Management

    our mgr's are all great and are working very hard under the really tough condition maybe upper mgr could work in store for a week or more and they might have a better understanding of what is really needed in store

    Pros

    Great staff discount, often runs competitions for gift cards, some managers are awesome and really nice people - really make you feel appreciated and valued.

    Cons

    Sometimes you might be put in any section, regardless of where you want to be. They'll then tell you to just act like you know the merchandise in this area, so you end up just looking incompetent when a customer needs help.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of only picking up all the bad things the staff do and chastising them, try to reward the good efforts as well. Some of the managers were great, but some just seemed to feel the need to constantly criticise and put the team members down.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours and management willing to work around flexible study schedules. Great team of people. Opportunities to transition from retail into other departments of the business and grow your career.

    Cons

    As with most retail jobs, work can become mundane and there are lots of different types of customers to deal with. Some employees have been with the company 10+ years and are not open to change which can make it hard to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who do a good job and you want to keep at any level. Change management for long standing team members to help adjust to new things.
