Pros: corporate office = great experience, great management training, good location, fundraisers annually
Cons: no 'casual fridays' (corp office), poor balance for work/home, very poor conditions for field employees, management in field is unprofessional
I've worked at the Corporate office in Dallas, TX as well as the field and there are VAST differences. One can expect a typical work day in a normal and stable retail company. Good hours, good benefits and salary, great location, holiday pay and 2 week vacation time after a couple years. The field is a completely different 'monster'. It's a lot like 'every man for himself'. Team effort is scarce and if you are in a management position you will have to work at least 50 hours a week including weekends.
