Pros

Supportive work environment. Company is striving to become an employer of choice. Professionals from many different companies are hired based upon not only experience and past success, but also personality and character traits that match the organizational goals and objectives, and core values of Burlington. Wide open door policy. Opportunity for growth here is immense. The teams the thing!

Cons

It is a good con to have, but...there is a lot of change going on at Burlington. So, there is a lot of disruption and plans may change often. The field management teams are settling in, but consistency between regions/territory should be improved and accountabilities made stronger. Other than that, this company is one of the best things to happen to my career.

Advice to Management

Continue to drive operational consistensies to the corporate and field teams. Hold all managers accountable in their evaluations not only for sales, but for training requirements, operational metrics, loss prevention performance, health and safety, and even turnover, Also, I would advise slowing down a bit with new initiatives until we can get the current ones inplemented and settled. Otherwise, great job leading our company!

    Pros

    Exciting to be a part of a company that is always looking to the future and how we can maximize our growth potential
    Opening several new stores each season, many of them in major markets
    Opportunity to personally grow within the company
    Work with professional and knowledgeable group of people
    Provides a challenging environment but you always feel good about your contribution
    Management cares about how the associates feel about the company and constantly ask for feedback to improve the work experience.

    Cons

    At times we are trying to grow so fast we make decisions too quickly without thinking them through which can result in poor execution

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the strategy we currently have in place to grow the business and have the right assortments in our stores so we become meaningfull competitors to other off-price retailers.
