    Pros

    Fun work environment. The company really does a great job with contests and ensuring it's employees are happy. It's a very warm environment with bright colors throughout the store. Awesome place to be in on an almost daily basis.

    Cons

    The only Con I can think of about the company is they do not allow us to take cash tips from customers. I've turned down hundreds of dollars in tips in my 2+ years with the company.

    I worked at Build-A-Bear

    Pros

    I definitely had a positive experience at BABW. The management I worked with was fantastic, and my fellow Bear Builders were great as well. You couldn't leave that place in a bad mood.

    Cons

    The communication between management and the general employees was not the best. We weren't informed in a lot of time when we would be having specials and sales so we could inform customers ahead of time. Because of a training error my a manager who was later fired, my register privileges were revoked and I lost the opportunity for a pay raise because of that.
