    Pros

    Great benefits, including paid maternity, paternity and family medical leave. Decent, competitive pay, great discount.

    Cons

    Because it's a relatively new "retail" company, there are immense issue with consistency between stores and managers. There is a lot of guess work and "winging" it, with disregard to company directives based on location. Was told multiple times I need to focus on creating a "relationship" with subordinates, but in the same breath told I need to make sure I'm not too friendly, which shows the almost hypocritical thinking that translates to almost everything. Room for advancement is extremely limited. As much as the company promotes internal promotion, they never develop their associates enough to, and then hire externally all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip. Focus on not only running the business the correct way. Stop trying to be a "family", and focus on just being a good place to work.
