    I have been working at The Shade Store full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The Shade Store has the most beautiful products and showrooms, great work environment, short turnaround times in production. Excellent company support from corporate, with direct access to members of all departments in real time. Team efforts are rewarded with monthly bonuses. Pay is above average.

    Cons

    Less than desirable work-life balance. Weekends. Disconnect between design consultants to measure and installer pros to production to final outcome.

    Advice to Management

    Should not need to take personal time off for sick days.

    Cons

    -Work life balance is NON EXISTENT. Partially because of the 10 PTO days / year (sick and vacation included), and partially because higher ups have no problem requesting (ie: demanding) employees to work late/over weekends.
