I have been working at Ethan Allen full-time for more than a year

Pros

Having a job is good, and the company has a good reputation

Cons

some stores offer a fixed commission structure, and little to no interaction between management and staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your designers. They are the face of the company, and the direct liaison between you and the client, which is where you make all of your money.

    Former Employee - Design Consultant in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Ethan Allen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Really enjoyed my profession, co-workers and clients.

    Cons

    Working weekends are non-negotiable due to retail like hours; which are not a good fit with those with young children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This would make a good show for "Undercover Boss". It would be a great idea for corporate to really see what is going on since the recession and reward rather than reprimand the "face" of the company/Designers. They work really hard, and are unappreciated for the crucial role they play in the company.
