    Discount! Company Culture and vibe! Lots of awesome people to work with, with diverse backgrounds! they like to promote from within, so lots of opportunity for growth in company.

    Cons

    pay isn't that great as part time, but management is paid very generously

    Management styles vary sometimes and it causes a lack of communication, but overall they have an open door policy and very perceptive to needs and concerns.

    Pros

    Work in a beautiful place, surrounded by gorgeous products and clothing. They offer a very good employee discount. Most of the employees I worked with were wonderful people! You also get to switch what you are doing about every hour which is nice!

    Cons

    Long hours of being on your feet, and unfortunately I spent most of the time organizing the sales section which was particularly popular at our store.

    Very cheerful and creative atmosphere, lots of opportunity for upward growth in the company. Rewards those who work hard.

    Hours are very subject to how well the store is selling product.

    Pros

    I was a visual display intern at Anthropologie for three months. I loved every second of it. I felt even as an intern I was given lots of creative freedom and responsibility. The work environment in the store was great too, my mentor taught me a lot and allowed me to ask question and learn from him.

    Cons

    I wish it was easier to get a fulltime job within the headquarters in Philly.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurship, creative, challenging, personal growth, career growth, inspiring, work life balance, lifestyle, surrounded by intelligent people, generous discount, ever changing environment, great product, job security.

    Cons

    Merchandising and visual display can sometimes be subjective, communication can be challenging with upper management, need to always be flexible and nimble with project changes and communication from home office. Work can spill over into your personal life easily.

    Advice to Management

    Not all employees are the same. Encourage diversity and differences in opinion. Feedback can be personal. Retention is challenging. Favoritism is rampant.
