    Pros

    The employees in the corporate office were fun. Good sales on items for the team.

    Cons

    The lack of growth within the company. You would have one job title but have a million responsibilities that included other job titles. Communication does not happen here. Get it together Game Stop.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Also, watch how your employees work, majority of promotions are not "true".
