    I worked at GameFly full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    company takes care of you
    good medical and dental
    great vacation hours
    everyone for the most part is friendly
    yearly bonus and Christmas bonus and yearly drawings for prizes
    401k
    reimbursement for schooling and gym
    I miss being apart of the company
    you fall in love working for this company

    Cons

    it can get really slow
    the managers seem to not be anything more than babysitters and no one keeps track of them
    there is no connection through out company warehouses seem more pitted against each other as well as no one warehouse does things the same
    upper management seems content with a declining customer base
    not a lot of opportunity to grow

    Advice to Management

    keep better eye on your managers some of them have literally been doing nothing for years.
