    I worked at Finish Line (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great product to sell to customers! Company is very organized. They really try to keep up with current trends and equipment

    Cons

    Sometimes they would roll out a system or program before they worked out all the kinks (Computer equipment, inventory programs).

    Advice to Management

    Really embrace and push a high pace atmosphere on your staff. Share your stores metrics with them. If not, you will get labeled by upper management as someone who does not want to "get with the program".
