      The worst job I’ve had

      Pros

      The office is nice

      Cons

      Everything, awful work life balance and high stress. Within a few weeks of working there I had to work from 8:30am to 3am because of their poor planning.

      Doesn't Keep it R.E.A.L

      Pros

      Nice facility. Interesting peers. Good work/life balance

      Cons

      They insist on being last at everything. There isn't a bold leader in the building. We're asked to be R E A L but when we are we're discouraged for talking out of turn. My VP was the most disingenuous person I have worked with in my career.

      Pros

      Work life balance, lots of free food, and very nice people.

      Cons

      Each department runs differently so the company tends to compete with itself and not see the big picture.

      Highest Turnover

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The co-workers are like family. They all care about each other and want the best for each other.

      Cons

      Highest turnover in a department I have ever seen. Everyone is currently looking for new jobs. Dishonesty within management. No real transparency. No way to get promoted unless you are a “brown noser” and in the click with the Sr VP, who is sexist and makes negative comments about women who have children. Negative atmosphere and unstable company. Benefits are horrendous. Work life balance is hardly regarded. HR cannot be trusted and high turnover with HR reps.

      Developer

      Pros

      The pay is industry standard.

      Cons

      Benefits are poor - premiums are 2 times what they were in my previous position and you have to PAY for short and long term disability. There is NO work/life balance in IT. Just long hours and no comp time. Company just went through a Chapter 11, closed a bunch of stores and laid off IT staff. NO job security, no attempt at retaining IT staff.

      Honest Feedback

      Pros

      There are opportunities to rotate into different departments and learn new components within each new field. This can be a great tool for those early in their career.

      Cons

      There is an extremely high workload and not enough employees to accommodate the responsibilities. Salaried employees are overworked as a result and raises are uncommon. While the new CEO seems to genuinely care about improving the work culture, this characteristic appears to be less of a priority for senior management. As others have noted in previous reviews, a good work/life balance is not easily achieved.

      Pros

      Work-life balance is great, Scheduling is very flexible. New building and inside features are really nice. Has mini store in building

      Cons

      Pay sucks compared to other companies, I came here thinking I had the room for growth but it’s about who you know. You truly have to be a butt kisser to get promoted. Management Boring
