    I worked at Namco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job is simple. If you manage to make it as a manager here, you will be worth way more when you leave.

    Cons

    Forget about being paid much, or going anywhere within the company. You are a Cog...get used to it.

    Advice to Management

    A clear advancement path would be a good thing, rather than continually hiring in for the upper positions from the outside. Also better pay will keep quality employees. I was a store manager, and my salary DOUBLED when I left Namco. And it wasn't a fluke...most of the management positions you find pay almost twice as much as you do.

    Pros

    I liked the ability to made my own decisions, and was rarely questioned about them. I got to price negotiate, and no one questioned my pricing decisions.

    Cons

    No upper management support.

    No job security
    Poor company buying and product support
    Inferior Products
    Horrible customer service support

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. You have been in this business for years now, you should know how to run this company.

    Pros

    Pay was good especially if you are good salesperson. I was paid salary plus a generous commission.

    Cons

    Fired me for no good reason at all. It all worked out as I won an unemployment appeal after I was denied.

    Advice to Management

    Be able to recognize an employee that is dealing with some personal issues.
