    I worked at Gymboree full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, corporate HQ is in a convenient location in SF

    Cons

    Corporate pay is low, they are more interested in hiring from the outside, few promotions and raises, Greedy and cut throat attitudes among the higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to continually cut costs in order to increase profits for yourself, think about your employees and their satisfaction. Clothing quality has deteriorated as well as the corporate environment overall. Their is a tremendous lack of appreciation and respect for employees. It appears that promotions take place depending on if upper management 'likes' you, not necessarily because of skill set or performance. The environment is caddy and it appears that upper management uses the poor economy as an excuse not to give raises.

    I have been working at Gymboree part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great manager and district manager
    Quality of product

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement
    Pay increases are awful
    Worst payroll I've ever seen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The payroll problem seriously needs to be remedied. Stores aren't given the hours needed to operate and to perform according to company's (very high) expectations.

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO
