I worked at Destination Maternity full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-wonderful home office staff. They were so pleasing and helpful to the field.
-easy job.
-small intimate staff of associates was enjoyable.

Cons

-the expectations are out of control. (The metrics were un-realistic and keep rising)
-sales and promos are stupid and make no sense. The prices are out of reach for most people to really shop.
-really they need to review blogs made just to trash talk the company's need to force people to subscribe to a magazine.
-saw a lot of talented managers leave or forced out of the company. The turn-over at all levels is mind boggling.
-I could go on and on

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lower your prices, get back to your roots. The company used to be one that anyone would be proud to say Yes I work there and I love it.

    Pros

    Great leadership and company tools to develop with as a manager.

    Cons

    Corporate management is very political and do not favor long term employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hours stores run on are the most minimal in the retail business, it is more challenging to run the environment they are requesting on this amount of hours. It is a ton of work for one employee to handle.
