Current Employee - Develobear in Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Build-A-Bear full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great benefits, great work life balance, great respect for employees, a great opportunity to learn new things. They truly respect family values and have bent over backwards to accommodate my schedule to allow me to work and take care of my family.

Cons

The most meeting happy place I have ever worked. Often you can have 7 1/2 hours of meetings in one day!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not really anything to add....still love working here.

    Pros

    Life balance is good during slow periods. Job can become boring.

    Cons

    Corporate does not back male managers. Thinking outside the box is not rewarded at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only apply if you are female
