    I worked at Future Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with; strong management; company has terrific inventory programs; good communication. I would return to work there again if salary would match (or exceed) what I was offered elsewhere; only left because I had an offer from another company that was too good to pass up.

    Cons

    Lots of paperwork/reports to do, which is time consuming and takes away from time I would have rather spent more productively with customers/making sales.

    Company has strong sense of corporate social/community responsibility. Supports a lot of charitable causes.

    Having to wear a tie and the dress code, I can understand when you are meeting clients but when you are in your office all the time it doesn't make sense. There is no possibility to take unpaid vacation.
