    Pros

    Very female-friendly company given hiring, promotions, complete and uncontrolled freedom in the workplace and women can do absolutely no wrong.

    Cons

    1. Men are treated as completely disposable assets and the work environment is near hostile to men. 2. Not growing and will not grow until brick & mortar model evolves.

    Advice to Management

    Take on Office Stores given the current overlap of products, a better brand in Service and ability to compete effectively against other Brick & Mortar business models.

    Create an atmosphere where junior level employees might be able to have input into the decision making process when appropriate.
