Pros

-Truly a friendly bunch of people. Hardly any 'bitchy' fashion types -good work/life balance -if you're a complacent type, you can surely be a 'lifer'. -good vacation days and benefits

Cons

-Only way to get promoted is to stay much longer than necessary, or to get an offer elsewhere and hope for a counter. -no marketing strategy whatsoever -constant and moronic changes to appease business needs on the day to day, vs any kind of longterm strategy. -Had first year of no bonuses in company history, and i believe it will be a trend now.

Advice to Management

-fire yourselves, and hire people who understand what a strategy is and how to implement one. -The nepotism is demoralizing, and you are losing talented people because of it. More importantly, be covert about it, because the people you give a halo to are embarrassingly dumb, and make you look the same. -Pretending to pull the wool over your employees eyes is offensive and results in higher turnover.

    Pros

    Very rewarding company to work for. Tons of recongnition for those performing well. Focused on training and developing their management team through different development plans and workshops.

    Cons

    The expectations are very high. "We do a lot (money) with a little (payroll)" philosophy means that assistants and store managers consistantly work over their expected 45 hours to purely meet the expections.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your managers to have a better work/life balance.
