    Pros

    Driven individuals are able to move up quickly, especially if you are mobile. There are very many pathways and job opportunities throughout a very healthy company and their many divisions (Full-Line stores, merchant, NPG, corporate, .com, new company acquisitions, etc.) It is what you make of it. It can be fun and fulfilling at times. You meet a lot of people who share your same passion along the way. If you're mobile, you can take more job opportunities and see more places. Great benefits (recognizes life partners). Great discount.

    Cons

    Base Salaries are small when you're first starting out in management, especially with the amount of responsibility and high expectations (from management and customers). This can lead to some long hours and stressful days, some early morning and late nights. You can sell and make comission, but don't expect to make more than some of your salespeople at times. Need to have flexible schedule. Expectation is to work Saturdays and some Sunday's, nights, and holiday (not Thanksgiving or Christmas). Usually you aren't able to take multiple days off in a row. Need to be mobile and wiling to take new roles and assignments when asked if you want to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue expanding, but don't lose focus on the in store experience for the customers. Continue building tools and streamlining to make DM responsibilities less time consuming, but don't take away responsibilities from the DM.
