    Pros

    The pros were working at home, at your own time, own computer and flexable timeline. Very little pressure since it's something that your enjoy doing.

    Cons

    There's really no cons in freelancing and working at home. If I were to say, I'll probably say no face to face contact. Working with each buyer was all emailed based, receiving and delivering final files.

  11. Lots of opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    Good programs to be recognized for a job well done. Programs to help you achieve your career goals. If you have aspirations, there are managers and mentors who want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Retail schedule involves many evenings and weekends but this is true no matter what retailer you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Always remain approachable to your associates. Make each one feel important and that their opinions are valued.
