I worked at Coldwater Creek full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Retail Field Staff is comprised of wonderful, talented, intelligent people. Customer Service is #1 in the retail market. I worked for this company for 5 years and loved my job for 4 1/2 years of those 5.

Cons

The daily frustrations became too much. The corporate staff was cut by 20%, insurance premiums doubled along with deductibles, PTO was taken away along with matching 401K funds which were promised at beginning of 2013. These cuts are supposed to save the company, but the same mistakes are still coming from corporate that got the company in trouble in the first place. Seriously, how can a few people at the top who are being paid way too much, keep making such poor business decisions?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire all of the top executives and let the Field Management run the company. Maybe then this company has a chance of survival.
