    Pros

    Great company, great support from corporate, insider info about gaming industry, easy to move up through the company, great local support network, fun events to plan, the CEO of the company is great (he sends us video and phone messages to keep us motivated and is very enthusiastic and supportive of the store personnel)

    Cons

    Micro-managed, intense pressure to achieve goals, frequently hires people outside of company to fill higher positions, has a change your people or change your people mentality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know how to play the politics in your favor, keep your nose clean, stay on the radar and below it simultaneously

    I have been working at GameStop full-time

    Pros

    Organization is quick to change/react to the business and associates needs. They listen to all ideas and value every single one of its employees. I have worked for other Fortune 500 companies during my retail career, but GameStop is one who cares even about the seasonal part time associate, regardless of your age, gender, or ethnicity. The company provides resources and tools to its associates and managers in order to succeed. Thus, it is up to each individual to chart their progress and career.

    Cons

    I have not seen anything detrimental.....it has its usual hiccups and headaches other companies go through, but this company is resilient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and being accessible as well as approachable. You are always willing to listen, and don't believe in titles.
