    Pros

    Modern, Innovative, Stock Options, High commission, Great Benefits. I love blockbuster I'll be so sad the day it dies.

    Cons

    Not Netflix. Not enough VHS options though. Can't afford a DVD Player yet sadly.

    Keep this company growing strong. Never let VHS go out of style! Digital streaming is just a fad I tell you.
