Disappointing

Design Consultant (Former Employee)
Vienna, VA

I worked at Ethan Allen

ProsGood Benefits, fun and helpful fellow workers, good looking showroom, the training is good as far as customer psychology goes, but not enough emphasis on doing what is best for customer.

ConsMisleading interviews telling you that good interior design is what is wanted when really what they want are high sales numbers.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore respect for the designers efforts. Most respect is shown to designers who have the highest numbers, even though their designs are full of problems once they are installed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
