    Pros

    The company has made some recent improvements to scheduling and to manager training which have made a difference. They are asking for feedback from the associates on how to make the company a better place to work. I enjoy coming in to work each day - we have a great team.

    Cons

    None of significance. While there are always things a company can do to make the work experience better, the I really think Burlington is a great place to work.

    Pros

    The company really values their associates and creates a very inclusive environment. When working within the various departments you will notices a goal driven environment and associates that respect one another. Yearly surveys to associates to gather feedback about their experience working at Burlington Stores, Inc. allows for a very open environment to share ideas and give feedback to senior leadership. The company is also very focused on development of employees, whether its horizontal or vertical growth. Also, very customer focused.

    Cons

    We can continue to focus on bringing more diversity within the corporate business. PTO is OK. Improve and develop a more work from home friendly environment.

    Pros

    As associates we have a voice in how the company is forming and participate in creating a great work experience together with my peers.

    Could be more progressive in terms of what our competitors offer I.e. Vacation, flexible work arrangements.
