    Strong focus on the customer
    Good Product Protection program (MaxAssurance)
    A Day Made Better program

    Cons

    Payroll hours make it tough to get things done.
    Associate discount program is weak
    Too many conference calls
    Reports, reports, reports

    Advice to Management

    Military discounts are asked about daily. I think its disrespectful in these times not to offer it.
    Lets get out of the Ink Refill market.
    To maintain a professional appearance, you've got to provide more shirts, or offer replcements more than once per year.
    PIF program is good, but, $5????? I mean, it beats the candy and soft drink, but, $5??????

    Pros

    You can really be yourself with your coworkers, everyone is very accepting and has a good outlook on the company.

    Cons

    There is a lack of leadership development within teams to properly assign roles. There should be a better structured grouping of people within each category.
