I have been working at Guitar Center full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good Company culture and winning attitude. Strong market share and passionate people about music and the success of the musicians they serve.

Cons

People were in roles that were not qualified or were promoted to their level of incompetency. They work the store crews very hard and at the time without much structure to succeed. I am sure it have changed now.

Advice to Management

Its all new management now so I am sure they will do a good job.
