    I have been working at lululemon

    Pros

    The company culture is incredible. The work life balance can't be beat. I keep going back! Salary is decent for retail and bonuses come in handy. Plus, the discount helps.

    Cons

    It's retail, so schedule always comes into play. You have to have a flexible schedule to get the position and holiday can be pretty grueling. As always, the quality of work depends on the manager.

    I worked at lululemon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being around like minded people and working next to smart, talented people. Working in an environment where you are supported and challenged to achieve goals, both personally and professionally. Great fitness benefits.

    Cons

    Most people like myself were attracted to the brand for our similar fitness/yoga/goal setting lifestyle. You have to be good about drawing boundaries with this job. It's easy for the lines to be blurred about when work ends and personal life begins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on people development and stability of senior leadership.

    I have been working at lululemon as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have never said the words "I love my job" until now. The environment at lululemon is beyond impressive. The company has countless ways to motivate employees from mediocrity to greatness and it really shows. Thank you lulu!

    Cons

    at first I was surprised about the lengthy interview process but now I understand why - lulu only employes the best employees to add to their productive community.

    I love the way the company is supportive of your individual goals both personal and professional. There is a focus on work/life balance and direct communication which I feel is lacking in other places of employment.
