Pros

great company, great product, job security (at least for now in 2009), challenging and interesting work

Cons

extremely long hours for people around me. I've heard some other groups are less stressful and work regular hours, but overall people work very hard and long hours.

Advice to Management

staff the overworked groups properly

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Working with cool products. Meet interesting people. Product discounts for you and family. Occasional small bonuses or gifts.

    Cons

    Irregular hours. Retail customers can sometimes be a pain. Unfair low compensation. Standing for eight hours is tough. Not really a long term career. Dead end job.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more on quality employees. Stop hiring weird people with tattoos, piercings, and hair that stands straight up. This turns off a lot of customers.
