    Fun atmosphere and plenty of team players. If you get along with former frat guys then this is a good place to be.

    Very reluctant to change and not interested in feedback that questions the senior leadership at all. Not a lot of relevant communication and most often decisions are made for the convenience of the sales floor.

    Atmosphere is fun, most employees are relaxed and don't take anything too seriously.

    Cons

    Management disregards anyone not in the top 5%, work-life balance is nonexistent, pay is terrible unless you're in the top 5%, and the job itself is by no means exciting, engaging, or anything anybody there truly wants to be doing.
