    I worked at Fry full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts on some items (varies depending on items). Easy to get a job, because no one smart will stay.

    Minimum pay, but still required to dress up (dress shirt, tie, leather shoes).

    Treat your employees better or you will probably be bankrupt.

    I worked at Fry (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company was dynamic and growing and was led by really smart people. The work environment was casual and friendly. Management was open to employees forging their own career path within the company, and changing roles within the organization was acceptable. It was a fun place to work until it was acquired by Micros in 2008.

    Cons

    In the early days, management roles shifted a lot which led to some confusion and inconsistency. Internal communication was sometimes poor which led to a lot of rumors and speculation.

    I worked at Fry (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good exposure to working with exciting clients, good team atmosphere where everyone is willing to help. A very good learning opportunity for anyone who is new to technology and the ecommerce world.

    Cons

    Lack of support from management, lack of direction from management especially after the several acquisitions. I believe it is finally owned by Oracle. The New York office where I was based was poorly managed

    Advice to Management

    Look after employees, especially in creating careers paths for junior developers who can form a good baseline for the company.

    Need to integrate new people into current projects so they can gain experience and have a chance to advance.

    If you haven't already done so, impove the onboarding process.
