    Pros

    Overall It's a great place to work at. Great managers always supporting you and treating you like family. There's a lot of room for growth if you play your cards right. Corporate only hires the best of the best. The pay is alright but based on your performance and experience you can get payed a lot more. This company has the best team morale I have ever seen, no one ever feels excluded.

    Cons

    Jealous and competitive people trying to get in your way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making changes, the retail industry has changed a lot over the years. The VP had made some great improvements but stop there, there's always room for growth and improvement. Listen to your employees and their creative ideas!
