    I worked at Chico's FAS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great pay (because of the bad location, you have the upper hand on negotiating a high salary if they really want you). great re-location package. great benefits. great bonuses based on your division's sales (1 year bonus was 15% of my salary). due to the low cost of living, you can build a nice nest egg if you can last longer than the 2 year relocation contract.

    sunshine, beautiful pristine beaches nearby, swimming pools

    if you stay past 2 years then you will most likely get promoted, if for no other reason than there is such a high turnover and need to fill positions. if you are employed during a period of fast growth then you can most likely build a stable position within the company. there is also opportunity for growth cross-functionally.

    Cons

    I worked for white house/black market. There are 2 categories of cons: the location and the job itself.

    Location: really, really bad. small town w/ transient / seasonal living. it's a retirement community, not for young/single/creative types. no night life, art scene or music scene. limited shopping. limited dating. police are overly aggressive and intimidating. unless you live in a house then you will live in a condo association and these are rigid and bogged down w/ rules, violations, etc. again: it's a retirement community that really lacks any opportunity or growth. chico's is by far the biggest (only) job creator in this area. when the housing market collapsed most growth in this area aside from chico's came to a screeching halt.

    Job: poor work/life balance. expected to work 8am - at least 8pm on average, and often expected to work weekends.
    very top heavy / upper management heavy. i suppose this can be said for most corporate environments. but a vp approval was needed for something that mid or lower management should have been able to approve. vp should not be worrying about rhinestone color approval.
    it's a retail product, so it's a fast paced and busy environment. changes are made at the last minute. the brand is understaffed due to high turnover (high turnover due to location) and employees get tired and worn down - often you can see it in their physical appearance.
    it's a very conservative, repetitive product. afraid to take risks. the brand cares most about what will sell, which tends to be the same silhouettes over and over. the biggest selling point in design is what new color will be added to the white & black mix.

    it's very difficult, or takes time, to meet people and socialize outside of the job. it's also a "competitive" environment. combined this means that you will frequently socialize w/ coworkers. this leaves little room for separation from the workplace, both physically and mentally.

    all of the on-site facilities are just another way to keep employees close-at-hand and working long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CHANGE CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS LOCATION. fashion is cutting edge and requires creative types. creative types do not flourish in a stunted environment w/o cultural icons.

    stop micro-managing the small details. give employees a sense of knowledge and empowerment. mentor instead of punish.
