Pros

Stability, vacation, location. Better work-life balance than any other retailer

Cons

Resistant to Change, nepotism, opportunities for growth or lateral moves. Opaque management decisions. Self-serving decisions by management compared to what is best for the actual health of the company

Advice to Management

bring more people with industry-standard expertise and experience. far too many senior people at the company have never worked anywhere else and operate in a bubble. We are constantly trying to re-invent the wheel when the problems we face have already been faced and overcome by other companies.
