Great place to work. Employees are given a clear career path and tools with lots of room for vertical growth.

Have annual in house career fairs for employees so they have an opportunity to research potential new interests and career paths.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    No quotas or productivity. Pretty lax policies on apprehensions. Started to go downhill in the last few years with the new director of Loss Prevention.

    Cons

    Horrible. No support from management. They will throw you under the bus and stab you in the back at the slightest chance. Absolutely NO recognition or respect. Company could not care less if they had LP at all. Look at the LP department as a drain.

    Advice to Management

    Power trips are bad for morale and mean you are a bad leader.
