Pros

Very successful company with great benefits. Wonderful place to start your career. You get to work closely with some of the most successful companies in the world (Like Wal-Mart)

Cons

Very thick glass ceiling that can only be shattered by moving up the chain slowly. Seriously -it takes decades to advance there.

Advice to Management

You have groomed a lot of great younger talent. Let them take over much sooner and guide the company to even higher heights.

    Pros

    Management recognizes and promotes strong performers; opportunities for growth and advancement in your career; company store is great!

    Cons

    Non-management salaries are just OK; workload is not evenly distributed (i.e. some people are out the door at 4:59pm every day, while others constantly work late); there is an unspoken understanding that to progress in the Finance group, you must do an international rotation in a foreign subsidiary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize and promote strong performers;
