I worked at Destination Maternity full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great customers
Paid floating holidays for every one worked (Christmas, Memorial Day, Etc)
Week of vacation earned every 6 months
Benefits are reasonably priced
Good amount of independence

Cons

No ongoing training opportunities
No real opportunities for advancement
Company runs stores with the minimum number of employees needed - payroll is limited
Changed dress code twice in the 2 years I was there - inconsistent

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please invest in your employees! Create and stick with corporate standards in operational areas - visual, clientele programs. Please make up your mind on corporate policies, including dress code - people have to invest a lot of money in clothes to wear to work!
