    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear full-time

    Pros

    Pacsun was just recently realigned with a new bank so they have a lot of exciting things happening. They do a great job of keeping up with the trends and the "hypes" Great management/leadership

    Cons

    Since they realigned with a new bank there is a lot of trial and error with processes. Things aren't as structured as they could be but over time they will get it done.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard and it'll pay off. Don't have a lot of pushback but be sure to defend yourself when something isn't right. Believe in the big picture.
