    Pros

    People you work with were extremely bright and more than happy to help. Managers take great pride in their jobs. Lots of employee incentives

    Cons

    Will take advantage of hours worked, try to get you to work every weekend. No flexibility with days worked/shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great atmosphere back of house. Maybe offer a bit more lenience when dealing with important personal issues.

    Pros

    The benefits and shopping discount are good and competitive.
    I have many many talented people who are not utilized properly for their skills.

    Cons

    The salaries for designers are not competitive and the longer you are there, the less you make.
    They rather pay more for people outside the company rather than promote the employees they have.

    Advice to Management

    The company is very top heavy.

  11. Great HR support and employee engagement efforts

    Pros

    HR is buttoned up from a talent management and performance management standpoint. Employees have tailored goals and development plans.

    Cons

    The environment can be emotional and dynamic, but it's a good challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employees at all levels, especially below the senior director level.
