Pros

- In general I find executives to be very knowledgeable and approachable
- Lots of people have worked their way up from the stores
- Company culture is great if you like sipping the blue kool-aid

Cons

- Lots of internal polictics
- Nobody gets fired... EVER! Lots of dead weight laying around the management can't take care of

Advice to Management

- Find a way to clean house, there are too many people showing up and doing nothing while people who want to actually get things done can't find the resources to actually do it
