    Pros

    Discounts
    Reasonable pay (for what you do)
    Flexible hours, allows you to have a good work/life balance
    Promotes healthy lifestyle

    Cons

    No real way to move up (many co-workers have tried), only full time or part time and the store you are at. Might be able to transfer, it would be at the same position you are currently at
    Management unorganized

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees a little more, allow them to move up in the company. Many people enjoy working for Pearl Izumi, they just get frustrated because there is no opportunity to move up.

    I have been working at Pearl Izumi (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Nice benefits if full time
    -Upper Management works hard to help everyone
    -Lower stress than most retail positions
    -Good discounts
    -Yearly bonus

    Cons

    -Upper Management has been cut down to less than 4 people in the past two years, and all extra work has been put on their shoulders
    -Pay is poor for what they expect of their employees, from part-time employees to store managers
    -Minimal organization on how stores should be run
    -Very little room to move up in company
    -Very behind in the times regarding technology
    -Understaffed everywhere
    -Retail locations are given strict and sometime contradictory rules, which makes employee's jobs harder

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to put more work on the employees you have and hire others to do the job. Hire someone for online marketing and stop living in the past. Poor pay for your sales people makes your good employees leave and your company suffers. Set up a more consistent plan for your retail stores and be willing to pay for the talent you want. Letting yourself be undercut by third party retailers only hurts yourself in the long run.
