    Pros

    This truly is the best company in the world. Employee owned makes a world of difference and the opportunities are endless

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any cons, this is a great company to work for. Retail is retail but they really make employees feel like they belong

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Work on communicating to store level personnel company intiatives
