Pros

What better reason to be positive about one's employer when it continues to grow during an economic downturn (2008-09). Founded in 1979, MC continues to outlast its retail competitors.
After establishing one's office creditability, executive management allows freedom for creativity and flexibility. This allows for personal job satisfaction that is high on everyone's priority list.

Cons

As there exists in most mainstream employment, office pressure is present. As the company grows, office goals per desk also grows. These are sometimes over-bearing and can affect one's basic character traits. One needs to adapt to these pressures to assure job security.

Advice to Management

Know when to push and when to be considerate. Showing a friendly side at the proper moment will instill more loyalty and drive for the future. Fear is not always the best motivator.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Competitive compensation
    -Competitive medical package
    -Extremely interactive management team
    -Clear goals (albeit inconsistent among groups at times)
    -Family friendly in respect to PTO, etc.
    -Generally a positive environment
    -Relatively flat management hierarchy (also a con, see below)
    -Many if not most employees passionate about what they do, especially in management positions

    Cons

    -Flat management hierarchy - little room for career advancement in most groups
    -ZERO retirement security - no 401K match, no pension
    -Worst corporate office building I have ever stepped foot into - Drab, brown, dark, packed full of people, cluttered, and not a single window in the building

    Advice to Management

    Management is very much in touch with their team, this goes from the top all the way down. The organization invests in customers obsessively (this is a good thing), however investing in the morale and long-term security of their associates is lacking. Providing an environment that associates LIKE to be in would go a long way.
