    I have been working at Eileen Fisher part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Excellent Pay
    -Comprehensive, Affordable Benefits
    -Clothing Allowance
    -A flexible team of coworkers
    -Work with a team of powerful, educated women
    -Yearly Raises
    -Yearly Stipends for Health/Wellness and Education
    -Positive work environment
    -Quarterly team bonding/wellness/celebration events paid for by corporate
    -Pride in working for a company that cares about it's people, people in general, and the environment

    Cons

    -Corporate is sometimes not as knowledgable as they should be about the processes of a retail store... and they make a lot of decisions that affect the systems in a store in a negative way without knowing it
    -Leadership positions are often given based on time spent within the company rather than leadership capacity
    -Disconnect between the business and practical aspects of the company, and the visual and creative parts of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a wonderful, generous, clean and empowering workplace. By shifting leadership emphasis towards skill and capacity rather than experience in this particular company, you might have a stronger community and less petty issues. Since working with this company, our retail store has never gotten a floorset shipment on time - maybe this and other issues are evidence of neglect on the side of corporate to understand what kind of strain this puts on a retail team.
