    I worked at Housing Works

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, generous time-off, convivial working environment, high level of commitment to clients.

    Cons

    Near complete lack of communication from senior management, mid-level management can (but certainly not always) be borderline incompetent, high turnover rate, opportunities for advancement are scarce, appears to be mismanaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Permitting and welcoming feedback might yield a lot of benefits. Overlooking employees cannot be productive in the long-term.

    Pros

    Decent discount
    Decent PTO days
    Good place to start off in retail and learn the basics of it

    Cons

    There seems to be no room for growth
    Treat employees like crap
    Only care about costumers needs and nothing more.
    Everything about this place is basically really screwed up.
