    I worked at Burlington Stores full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Location, co-workers, company provides continual training, they listen to their employees! Annual ‘Your Voice’ surveys are conducted and actual change comes from the survey

    Cons

    The corporate building is cold all year round, seriously. Many of us have blanks we rap ourselves in during the WINTER time

    Pros

    - Company very much cares about your development in your role (great development program) and potential future within the company - Ability to move around to different areas within the company if desired
