    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 for more than a 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.

    I worked at 1-800-Flowers.com full-time for more than a year

    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!

    Pros

    work-from-home; great support from managers, co-workers, and tech; reputable company offering high-quality products to customers.

    Cons

    seasonal position- there was about a month between the Valentine's Day and Mother's Day holidays; next hiring doesn't start until late Nov for the winter holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    weekly pay with a direct deposit option would be great; more opportunities for seasonal employees seeking longer-term options

    Former Employee - Accounts Receivable Coordinator in Carle Place, NY

    I worked at 1-800-Flowers.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a lot of hard work but there is good team work in all the departments and you are given respect by upper management and acknowledged for a job well done. They have monthly Town Hall meetings and always talk about new products and any internal changes and promote a very good atmosphere to work in on a daily basis.

    Cons

    You have monthly deadlines to meet so you have to make sure all the work is completed on time and they also have very busy periods where you have to work on weekends for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day but they take good care of all the employees and make it fun to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is very strong in all areas and they take the time to listen and sit down with their staff to make sure everything is running smoothly.
