    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    great work/life balance
    awesome discount
    some co workers are awesome
    some upper mgmt are receptive to your opinion

    Cons

    company going through too many changes
    upper management does not realize that ground level mgrs do more grunt work than being a mgr
    some dm's are two cards short of a full deck, they are only concerned with saving their butts and not supporting the stores
    they are a small company trying to be big boys in retail.
    get back to the basics instead of following everyone else in retail
    dm's show favoritism to alot of mgrs that do not deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    upper mgmt needs to really listen to the front line, because they are the ones that are keeping your house of cards up and running
