    Pros

    Relaxed, low pressure. Bosses are more likely to work with you to achieve goals than threaten you. I have to make this 20 words.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room to grow. Too many people ahead of you with too few positions. Need 3 more words.

    Pros

    This is a family friendly company. Flexible. Good work environment. Good people. Fun products. MC Sports is very good at promoting from within and recognizing talented people. They also invest in training their people through vendor expos and give back to community through sponsorships and their commitment to the Children's Miracle Network.

    Cons

    This is a retail company, so you need to be willing to work weekends and holidays. They joined many other retailers in opening on Thanksgiving, but at least they open later in the day.

    Advice to Management

    I think they need an e-commerce site and invest in a newer POS system. I would also like to see an investment in more scanners for the sales floor.

    Pros

    The people you work with are awesome. Then products you sell are cool. The customers youj deal with are looking to buy something fun.

    Cons

    Retail hours, overall work environment. The management team that runs the company thinks they are better then the people who actually deal with the customers.

    Listen to the people that work in the stores!
