    Compensation doesn't really compensate for never seeing your family.

    *Listen to your long term employees.
    *Outsiders DO NOT necessarily have all the answers.

    I worked at Carter's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of room to explore different methods of achieving goals, company is not cheap and does take care of employees with food, prizes and some fun. The company's outlook on business was strong, the clothing is cute.

    Cons

    Management needs to teach more, lots of private meetings. HR seems non approachable and one sided, certain members of departments were always left out and only favorites allowed in. Carter's university was launched to better yourself but never allowed to do ask workload was always too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to department survey results. It was over a year and things were never resolved. Just one meeting and from there never again addressed. Certain VPs need to have stern conversations themselves with higher leadership. They should not get a free pass from their poor management.
