Pros

Retail is a less then desirable field but its nice to find a company that makes the field easy to live in. Great benefits for a retailer especially in a time when most are cutting benefits to save money.

Cons

Retail is retail, hours are long and change every week. Review is for the retail division, opportunity to advance is rare. Recruitment focuses outside the company not at promoting within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When possible set hours helps especially if you can. Not giving a set schedule just because you don't want them to get used to it.

    Pros

    Quality of life, benefits, pay; working with very smart (and nice!) people to solve very interesting problems. Tough to ask much more of "work."

    Cons

    Inherent to working within a large organization is that the number of stakeholders you need to bring into alignment in order to bring an idea from concept to reality is quite large. If selling/proving the desirability, feasibility and viability of your product/idea is not your bag, then large organizations, in particular, are not for you. If, on the other hand, you relish this kind of challenge, and view it as simply another design challenge, then you will do well.
