I worked at H&M full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Always something to do at work, never bored. You have the opportunity to gain multiple skill sets relavent to other industries outside of retail. Professional atmosphere for the most part! 6 paid holidays.

Cons

Corporate expectations are very high. Often unattainable. NO positive feedback! H&M seems to attract people who do not offer words of affirmation. Never enough time as a manager to take vacation time.

Advice to Management

Communicate more effectively from the corporate level down. Trust your store management teams to make relavent business decision for their locations. I mean it's "Entreprenurial Spirit" right? Also look at your store reports over time for newly "comp" locations. It's hard to establish consistent customer base in a lot of markets.
