Pros

The company is very entrepreneurial and is well poised to maintain that competitive advantage as it grows. The company culture is great - high energy, great mix of hard work and fun. It is a great place to work with lots of opportunity at all levels. Feels like a small business that has the impact of a much larger company.

Cons

Straight up salary is not necessarily as competitive as other companies. However, they make up for it in equity, benefits, company culture and opportunity to grow.

Advice to Management

Don't lose the entrepreneurial edge as you grow. Don't let the dollar signs cloud your vision for the company. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    CSN Stores is an extremely laid-back environment. T-shirts are probably as common as button-downs. There are no partitions in the workspace, so it's a very friendly atmosphere which promotes friendship and collaboration across organizational boundaries.

    Cons

    While it's a good place to gain experience in multiple departments of a corporation, don't expect to be compensated financially for increased competence. It's a good place for college graduates to get some work experience on their resumes, but it's not a good place to stick around if you want the money to be able to enjoy Boston.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership at CSN Stores has done a great job of keeping everyone informed, despite the growing number of employees (now at ~800). It would be great to continue this type of leadership as well as continuing to ask for feedback on how to improve the culture. I believe all the employees welcome these opportunities and are excited to contribute to the overall direction of CSN Stores.
