    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Shoppers Drug Mart were the friendly workplace environment and the high salaries comparing to other companies.

    Cons

    The disadvantages of the company were the little vacation period and the extensive hours of operation comparing to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to advice you to open a single store of your company in Albania,Europe because Albania is a country model in Europe for the economical growth.The Prime Minister,Sali Berisha will help you to establish the new business there.The profits will come from the first year.The taxation system is the lowest in Europe.
