      Pros

      Absolutely none. I guess health insurance is great?

      Cons

      They do not care about employees at all. There are layoffs every other year. The company continues to reduce resources then shift the work to other people until they burn out and have no other choice but to quit. They completely disregard employee and customer feedback on product development thus producing products that no one asks for then act surprised when they don’t perform well. During the start of the pandemic not only did they not reimburse employees whatsoever for working from home they were allowed to take home their working equipment or expense working equipment. Other billion dollar companies have done this for their employees. In addition, no one received a bonus or raise last year due to the pandemic. There really is no incentive to work here other than the name which is slowly becoming irrelevant.

      Pros

      The company values doing the right thing over pinching pennies. My main store manager was exceptionally great; both supportive and trusting.

      Cons

      Some of the other store leaders and employees were really terrible to work with. And unfortunately, the company decided to close all retail stores....but they took great care of us right up to the end.
