Pros

Great Work Environment
Associate Appreciation
Successful brands (rewarding)
Great learning experience
Great management
Full time associates have amazing benefits package, growth opportunities, and many other perks

Cons

Keep freelancers for YEARS without awarding them company discount or benefits
Long hours with no overtime and no paid personal days, sick days or holidays for freelancers
Freelancers do not have the same growth opportunities as full time associates but sometimes have the same or more daily responsibilities. Sometimes freelancers have even been managers of a department for YEARS before being hired full time.
This is a multi-billion-dollar company - they should be able to hire their long-term freelancers.
Very political - be careful who you trust and how you interact with others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire your freelancers after they've put in a full year or offer full benefits, sick days, 401K, promotion, etc. A successful company is one that values all of it's employees and gives incentives for all their hard work.

    Pros

    Good strategic direction, overall good leadership, smart, young, hip company. Work-life balance is fair, you get a significant number of PTO days from start. Discount is good if you are a female. Good place to start a career, get chance to learn a lot about the retail fashion industry.

    Cons

    Lacking realistic long-term opportunities for high achieving individuals..."need to wait your turn" in a lot of situations. Dead-weight in many areas of the organization..."lifers" exist almost everywhere and are clogging up opportunities for younger, talented employees. Lacking pro-active approach to doing business, lots of reacting. Extremely seasonal industry, super busy during holiday season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop way to speed up development, promotions, career opportunities for young, educated, high achieving folks, or they are going to walk....as many do.

    Pros

    Good chance for advancement and learnings, great personal development, good 401K after 1 year, amazing leaders, both in dept and within the organization as a whole

    Cons

    They have a soft culture that can be misunderstood at time, their bonus programs and benifits aren't that great - don't get much but your base.
