    Pros

    Laid back culture, promotes a 'family atmosphere'

    I worked at Maurice Sporting Goods full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Still some really good people there.

    Cons

    However they let way more great people go with no severance at all....30 year people. Almost all the important vendors are gone and they have one important account left. Writing is on the wall for what ever they have left. It’s amazon that a company with such a long history could come unglued in a year and half. Many have move on to more stable situations.

    Advice to Management

    Should have stayed focused on the basics and not try to get too fancy...it was working fine.
