    I worked at Dick Smith part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great experience, opportunity for internal promotion. Access to product education, and Microsoft promotional events. Wonderful team members.

    Cons

    Shrinking market share and inability to compete with online stores, or direct competitors like JBHiFi. Poor inventory decisions meant overstocking on fast moving consumer electronics that would quickly become obsolete (dozens of remote control cars at Christmas time?)
