    I worked at Decathlon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Getting exposed with great challenges which helps you to learn more in a short span of time - Very human centric. - Rich in terms of values and it inculcates them in most of the team mates. - Very frugal in terms of spending. Makes one realize how every penny is valuable

    Cons

    - It is paradoxical that most of the sports persons working in a store reduce practicing their sport once they start working - A great challenge to maintain work life balance.
