I have been working at Chico's FAS full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good associate discounts, flexible and work life balance schedule. Although almost every benefit has increased in cost and reduced in benefits, it's still pretty competitive.

Cons

Unrealistic sales plans and selling bonus plan for both sales and management....a tool they use to manipulate salaries. This applies primarily to Store Management teams.
Internet returns go against the stores' sales. Yet sales plans have increased.
This company is no longer "different" or "special" than every other retailer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay fairly for work performed. Consider the increase in internet/catalog business and separate this business from the stores.
Bring integrity back to the brand (Chico's).

    I have been working at Chico's FAS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice facilities. Great location. Willingness to spend for automation. Air conditioned warehouse with new fitness center opening soon. Open campus environment.

    Cons

    Upper management treats Leads, Supervisors, and Managers like crap. Push, push, push and threaten you with being replaced. Talks the talk...does not walk the walk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop threatening middle managers, supervisors, and leads. Start treating middle management with the same great place to work philosophy that you preach for hourly associates.
