    I have been working at Toys "R" Us full-time

    Pros

    Great company to work for. It should be criminal what the investment companies Bain Capital, Vornado Reality Trust, and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, did when they bought the company and caused it to go bankrupt with their loans that they stuck Toys with since they couldn't afford to buy the company in the first place.

    Cons

    Going out of business. Ending soon.

    Advice to Management

    Get out if any of these three investment companies buy any part of yours.
