    I worked at 1-800-Flowers.com as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working at 1800flowers was a great learning experience for my future career. Many employees would give presentations to the interns on what their department's role is in the company. They also taught us how to present ourselves to employees on LinkedIn. We were all treated like actual employees, not the stereotypical intern who fetches coffee.

    Cons

    The only con I could think of is the building. It's out of date, the air conditioning was broken for a couple weeks, and there were leaks from the ceiling. I don't drive, but the parking lot has structural damage, so no one could park there. To make up for this, they offer valet service and shuttle buses to another parking lot and to the Mineola train station.

    I get up 10 min before I have to be to work. Log onto my computer and pull up my tools to do my job. I can sit in my jammies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. My trainer for the last two seasons has been so patient.

    Pros

    Full benefits
    Good salaries, with bonus

    Cons

    Can be very competitive with co-workers, at higher levels
    Holidays are crunch time, you must work then, its in your contract
    Still a family business
    You have to live on Long Island, or reverse commute from the City
    They churn thru people, but good to have on your resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push plants, cut flowers are not green.
    You're following your present demographics down the rat hole.

    Pros

    Daily meetings on a daily business across divisions allowing all to know what is going on in a daily changing business due to the internet.

    Cons

    New employees take a long time to be embrased by older employees. Teams are generally overworked and staffing needs to be added to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to new employees. You saw something in them. That's why you hired them.

    I have been working at 1-800-Flowers.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1800Flowers.com is a great place to work for to gain some experience. I worked as an mba intern on the mobile team and they were amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better team, the team was growing, fast pace and the hardest working team in the company. Everyone is super helpful and there is definitely a huge learning curve. There was never a dull moment at the office, there's even a treadmill/ bike desk!

    Cons

    Building is slowly falling apart. Work during major holidays (xmas, vday, mday) but what do you expect - it is a gifting company.

    Pros

    Owners are very smart, marketing savvy people, who you can learn a lot from. Very creative, very proven, very innovative and friendly and willing to help you in general. They do not hesitate to fire VP's and senior management if they are not performing - very respectable!

    Cons

    Family run company so it's screwed up with terrible management everywhere. The office is a dump, open cubes, terrible building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some senior leaders may perform, but they are bad people and "jerks". Clean them out and your turnover would not be as high as it is. The company has a horrible reputation on Long Island. Jim, do you want your company to be the one that hiring managers see on a resume and roll their eyes and smirk?

    I think that their are some minor changes that could be made, however, over-all you're doing a great job!
