    Pros

    -free fitness classes -fun coworkers -good discount

    Cons

    -incredibly unqualified and inept managers -gossip masked as "feedback" -company "manifesto" lacks substance due to inconsistent implementation -poor scheduling inhibits intended "work-life balance" -cult-like atmosphere -rampant favoritism prevents advancement of more qualified, harder working employees -strict interaction guidelines and overall policies hinder guest experience -general lack of professionalism among those in higher positions -lack of clarity and transparency regarding guidelines for advancement **if you are in any way educated, mature, or self-assured, RUN.

    Advice to Management

    Be more in-tune with what's happening in each retail store. Perhaps even clean house and externally hire more qualified store managers. This is a company, not a high school clique.
