    Pros

    Excellent coworkers that are passionate about the work they do and are committed to delivering the best customer service experience possible, internally and externally. Great work/life balance. Huge commitment to teamwork, collaboration, and communication. Excellent culture overall - people genuinely enjoy helping others succeed within their roles.

    Cons

    Great benefits plans but the PTO leaves a bit to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    The technology could use an upgrade. Computers tend to be outdated and the servers run incredibly slow. Getting these basics right could pay huge dividends for employees in the stores and corporate offices.
