    I have been working at ThinkGeek full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Previously, I worked at a pretty large, traditional accounting/consulting firm, and I am truly loving ThinkGeek so far. The culture is super relaxed and right up my alley. I get to wear a t-shirt and jeans to work, and there's tons of free geeky swag at the office. At least for me, the commute is totally reasonable (about 15-20 min). Also, I never realized how much I was missing out by not having a real desk with two monitors and a docking station. The people really do make this place though. Everyone I work with from management on down is really honest, understanding, and fun. But yeah overall, I couldn't be happier.

    Cons

    The holiday season is pretty hectic, since November-December is when we do a good bit of our business for the year, but no different from any other gift retailer in that respect. Because it's a smaller company where people wear a lot of different hats, there is a lot of task switching which can sometimes make it harder to focus on the long-term projects you want to get done, but I imagine this occurs just about everywhere, and ThinkGeek is still way better than where I used to work where we'd be working on 5-10 different client projects at once.

    I worked at ThinkGeek part-time

    Pros

    Great environment and fun people, flexible schedule,easy ability for progression with the company

    Cons

    Not enough hours to work, too much shipment for our location, horrible communication skills, great products but an inability to utilize them due to the vast amount of other work available

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for yourself and be firm, work on organization, and quit talking down to your employees
