    Pros

    Benefits, Discount card and retirement plan.

    Work expectations too high. Lots of responsibility and tasks given to managers that cannot be accomplished on a daily basis. You barely keep your head above water and sacrifice your family life in order to keep your job with the business.

    Leadership is a growing quality. You need to listen to your associates and follow up with their suggestions.

    The business as a whole needs to improve and support their leadership with the end goal of excellence!
