    Pros

    If you enjoy people and helping pregnant new moms be stylish then this is the place.

    Cons

    no growth opportunities at all or benefits ie.. medical etc.

    Advice to Management

    the company makes enough money to give employees some type of benefits. if you're making over a $1000 a day in sales and meeting targeted goals, where are the rewards for that?

    I worked at Destination Maternity full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Normal retail standards... Alright insurance for full time employees, retail hours, if you're a "good" employee you might (not during black out periods) have requested days off, company went international- six other countries outside the USA years ago...

    Cons

    Ageism, after going public a new company culture emerged, cutting overhead equals missing great guest service at most locations, Aetna insurance, favoritism runs high,

    Advice to Management

    Make friends with other managers and their teams. Also impress/make "friends" with your district manager as well as regional manager. The IT department is the company's hardest working "team"

    clear direction by supervisors to be able to drive results through stores, always seeking new and creative initiatives to build business

    limited hours in stores, lease locations were challenging to manage due to limited hours, additional training hours are needed for team members to be successful

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here

    Cons

    There are many downsides to working here. First, if you're in a small store you're normally the only one working there until the next person comes in which leads to a HUGE communication problem between management. Another thing that bothers me is that sales associates are allowed to open and close by themselves under no supervision. We had issues with sales associates stealing deposits.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! Also please
