      Pros

      That the place is very spacious management doesn't micromanage. The environment is amazing.everyone is very supportive

      Cons

      Doesn’t have a area for nursing moms. Wish our lunch rooms were bigger. The stock rooms are so small we have to climb up.

      Abusive, unsupportive tech leadership - avoid working here

      Pros

      Location of offices. Store discounts and sales.

      Cons

      Inept tech leadership team. Complete lack of focus on where to take the business from CEO trickles down to the tech team, which has gone through multiple rounds of painful layoffs in the past 2 years. Hiring of brutal Directors and VPs whose sole purpose for existing is to slash the staff budget, by any means. Including deploying explicitly racist and abusive methods to try to force voluntary departures of long time staff members. Staff who they deem acceptable to keep around are treated like cogs, with little to no path to career growth. Note, it wasn't always this extreme until the recent leadership group was put in place.
