    Pros

    Friendly staff and Team Leaders, Fast paced environment, Flexible hours.

    Pros

    The scope of the problems you work on is enormous. There are few places where you can work on systems and practices that support 2500+ stores and billions in revenues!

    Cons

    There are many mainframe and legacy systems that have to be retired, but the future of their technology looks great!

    Pros

    Team mates are amazing, current changes have increased our work loads but everyone has really stepped up.

    Uncertainty and hyper focus on cost savings can make you job incredibly difficult.

    Stay positive and honest and communicate communicate. Its the key to happy employees there is another more frustrating than hearing about possible changes being told they aren't happening and those changes being implemented a month later.
