    Cons

    -incredibly unqualified and inept managers

    -cult-like atmosphere
    -rampant favoritism prevents advancement of more qualified, harder working employees
    -strict interaction guidelines and overall policies hinder guest experience

    Be more in-tune with what's happening in each retail store. Perhaps even clean house and externally hire more qualified store managers. This is a company, not a high school clique.
