    I worked at Retail Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a pretty casual working environment with smart people and the ability to balance the rest of your life. The executive team allows for financial transparency which is refreshing.

    Cons

    Some of the middle to upper managers/directors/VP's are not as competent as they should be. Typical of a fat growing company. They attempt but fail somewhat on building a good and fun culture...

    I have been working at Retail Solutions full-time

    Pros

    I love the people I work with and we make an effort to have a good culture and work life balance.

    Cons

    We do not have a strong foundation or company vision to march toward. The benefits are so so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We should focus more on our culture and developing current employees. All our focus seems to be around growing the business at any cost.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Providence, RI

    I worked at Retail Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefit structure
    **
    - For Engineers: Ever changing platforms and software helps them work across multiple technologies/platforms/tools - great place to learn new stuff and get hands on.
    - Product Mgmt: Huge plus constant new happenings; just might be overwhelming
    - Sales/Biz Dev: Sweet spot, they can do whatever they want (without realizing the pain inflicted to other departments)
    - PMO: Processes are in flux, reaching steady state soon (hopefully)
    - Operations: Painful because of disparate not-in-sync-systems; not scaling to need and meeting SLAs.

    ** Great CEO and vision meaning stock options might help in the longer term

    Cons

    The scalability of the legacy platform used the by RSi is flawed and is known to degrade on KPIs as time progresses.
    Execution end to end as a company machine is flawed at multiple points unable to grow the co. to go public.
    Some reporting structures are weird. Long timers bias is significant
    * Some resources are extremely Overworked *

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on costs - quickly.
    Management of employees and reporting structures should be re-looked at.
    Please ensure work life balance.

    Pros

    Not very good to pick up many skills but good place to start. Good place for senior roles as well

    Cons

    Company is very large and quite old but still on a growing stage, so you will lack a fresher startup set up but wont get great benefits of a premium company as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to advice, they are quite good in their own way.
