    Pros

    The customer service is extraordinary. You never have to worry about saying 'no' to a customer at any point.

    Cons

    Severely understaffed, and there is very little room for advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your employees more seriously when it comes to their desires to learn and grow with the company.

    Former Employee - Department Manager
    Former Employee - Department Manager

    I worked at Bed Bath & Beyond full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Growth potential
    Salary
    Liberal but challenging working environment
    Product knowledge
    Engaging working environment
    Quality peers
    Your time off was not interrupted & respected
    Diverse company profile with recent acquisitions of other models
    Debt free & solid with no real market competition
    Customer loyalty

    Cons

    District management agenda & intervention
    At times you are a overpaid stocker & less a manager
    Better training program needed. Currently a one size fits all fast track
    Antiquated in some areas like POS & scanners
    Not your average Big Box experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging & being so clandestine with Big Picture. You hire quality people so let them lead their stores. You advertise store process "ownership" however my experience was that every important decision especially upward mobility was a DM decision.
    Realize that fast tracking a new manager is going to "get you what you pay for."
