Pros

Great place to be if want to have a life and work for a large company. You do get pigeon holed into doing one thing so keep your other skills sharp some other way if you are trying to progress your career.

Cons

Not very progressive in how they market themselves, but I think it's getting better.

Advice to Management

Overall pretty good. There are a lot of you, so be aware of that.

    Pros

    great benefits! 80+ hours vacation time, 48 hours sick time. when it's slow, it's very slow. when it's busy, it's unbearable.

    Cons

    poor upper management, workplace currently suffering from extremely low morale, turnover rates are very high. mall parking is not very good. overall, retail business is very micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    A more personal connection must be made between upper management and the rest of the staff. Communications, overall, need improvement.
