    Pros

    Great opportunities to progress if you work hard.

    Cons

    Antisocial hours, no two days off allowed together, very strict environment. The company is a bit unorganized when it comes with SALE/ OFFERS prep - very short notice given, end up working crazy long hours.

    Advice to Management

    The company should organize social events for employees. Everyone works extremely hard and such events could improve company culture. Why not make "The most wanted company to work for" just by adding well-deserved fun?
