Pros

Salary, cooperation among different groups, ethics, and bleeding edge work.

Cons

Lately, a lack of equipment to do the job and excess secrecy/security.

Advice to Management

Lighten up - we're not leaking secrets. Stop being cheap with the tools we need to work.

    Pros

    Great access to new and cool technology. Great to work with young people my age and share knowledge. Fantastic if you like helping people through problems or teaching them how to use their devices.

    Cons

    Horrible management structure. Some "Specialists" are not keen on the techno lingo...which creates problems for the "smart" ones in the store that end up fixing mistakes for everyone. No flexibility in management rules.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest. No caddy bs. And please be on the same page. It is very annoying to play the "mom vs dad" game when trying to help out a customer.


  2. "9 years of running wind sprints"

    Pros

    Wonderful to be a part of growing the most fantastic retail company in the world. Good benefits, health, and discounts, and fun teamwork.

    Cons

    High stress, moved from store to store many many times. They would raise the bar of how much we were to do and then level off for a bit and then raise the bar again... this was repeated many times in a year. Continual change... daily change... constantly changing gears.

    Advice to Management

    There were amazing managers there, but some were just not. The stress was overwhelming and some knew how to diffuse it and work WITH a team but others just let it fester within.
