    I have been working at Winmark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people who work here have been here for many many years! Can definitely find wisdom if you ask the right people and questions.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is that many things are done in quite an archaic fashion. Sometimes it feels like the answer when asking "why something is done in a certain way?" Is alway "because that's just how it's always been!"

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to feel like there are opportunities to grow and to feel as though new ideas are seen as valuable rather than a burden.

    Pros

    Management is responsive to industry/market changes. A family friendly environment, exciting new sales VP, great training, great compensation, I see a long-term future with this company

    Cons

    You work hard, but you can make a great living, wish I could work from home one day a week.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the current strategy, new VP of sales is great!

    Pros

    Good HealthCare. Other than that this company will just use and discard you. The building looks nice from the outside. Not really any pros which is quite unfortunate.

    Cons

    Everything Else. Salary is far below standard, Life\Work balance is awful. Wear far too many hats at this company. No Growth potential. Zero appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your Staff and stand up for them. When everyone is disgruntled that should waive a red flag

    Pros

    Company is a good sized organization where employees have opportunity to be involved in many initiatives (if they show interest in doing so). Employees are cared for - especially when they may be going through tough times. Leadership decisions are well thought out.

    Cons

    Lean organization which can lead to employees wearing mutliple hats but this offers opportunity for experience.
