    I have been working at SThree (more than an year)


    -Uncapped commission structure, with pretty decent payouts if you can stack your sales.
    -Great incentives.
    -Young, energetic co-workers.
    -Decent formal training (though the real way to learn is to emulate top billers).
    -We are moving to a beautiful new office.
    -The SThree brands are becoming more and more recognizable in the US.
    -This job will teach you to be disciplined and punctual, and if you pay attention, you will learn a great sales skill set.


    -Upper management is completely disconnected from their employees; maybe now that we have had some turnover they will realize how unhappy the majority of us are.
    -They claim that career advancement is completely meritocratic, but several managers have been promoted based on inflated (read: FALSE) numbers. We know you didn't hit your targets, so we don't respect your authority.
    -Total boys club. It can be incredibly frustrating/intimidating/humiliating to be a woman on the desk. Oh, and don't think we aren't scratching our heads over the fact that there are as many women as men at this company and there are still an absurdly low proportion of female managers/directors. (As a side note, and overwhelming majority of the people who recently left were women.)
    -Management will endeavor to learn as much as they can about you, your professional aspirations, and your personal life and use it to manipulate you. They will figure out your paint points and harp on them until you produce or crack. With very few exceptions, these people are NOT your friends, although they do an awesome job of making you believe otherwise.
    -Sales is absolutely a numbers game, but the emphasis on KPI's can be wildly excessive at times. Hint: It also gives away the fact that you don't actually care about us as people, only as revenue producers.
    -The atmosphere has become increasingly unprofessional. If you come in drunk from last nights party, it's not a problem as long as you were out with coworkers (this includes managers).
    -I don't know where to begin with the CEO. Maybe I'll just say that the unprofessional atmosphere, especially as it pertains to women, probably filters down from him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't start showing at least some signs that you will take steps to improve employee welfare, I won't be the only one who starts looking elsewhere...
