    Pros

    Friendly staff, family atmosphere. Upper management is open to new ideas.

    Company is top heavy. Invests more into online sales with no payroll for brick and morter stores

    Stop having unrealistic expectations for employees unless you give more payroll to the stores in order to accomplish everything and take care of customers

    Pros

    Really get to run your own business. Have the ability to look up and see great reports to help you run the business.

    Cons

    the way the product is flowed into the store.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to flow the product in better. Stop marking down the shoes so much and adjust with signage. Less markdowns and let clearance be part of 1st and half.
