    Pros

    When you work here it is like you are working with family. Things are starting to change hopefully for the better.

    Cons

    With the struggles the company has had in the past few years it is sad to think it might not continue.

    Advice to Management

    Get some merchandise in the stores people want to purchase, get out of the cell phone business

    Pros

    This was a great inside sales role with no limitation on geography or customer type. The product assortment was very profitable which made it easy to reach your sales goals. All of the employees and management were helpful and supportive. Really it was one of the best overall employment experiences I have had.

    Cons

    RadioShack couldnt pull out of the downward spiral of bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    If radioshack does continue in some capacity after the bankruptcy having a small inside sales team again would be beneficial to the new organization.

    Pros

    Great people, reasonable expectations, decent work life balance, generally a fire drill weekly versus daily. Salary fair for Ft Worth

    Cons

    Business Leadership Drives too many changes in projects. Too many large backend processes keeps IT from looking like a nimble organization.

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with and work was very interesting because there was so much variety to it. Work environment was relaxed and not stressful and dress was casual.

    Cons

    Pay was low and RadioShack did not pay 100% of health care, paid 80% for employee and 50% for dependents. A lot of turn over because of the low pay which resulted in losing really good quality employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay higher salaries to keep quality employees.

    Pros

    Great working staff. Everyone works as a team. Always plenty of opportunity to move up in the company. Management is always there to support.

    Cons

    Support systems are archaic. Multiple systems needed to get an end result. All systems home grown so there is no universal language.

    Advice to Management

    No advice at this time...
