    Pros

    Above Market Salaries, Inclusive Culture, Lead Developer and above are Bonus eligible, Some locations in Atlanta Suburb(Heard they are moving to midtown/downtown Atlanta which will be crazy) not bad for commute. Lot to learn on the technology front and you get to work with wonderful people.

    If you know Retail even a little, you should know it all.
