Pros

the snr management there is inspiring and thougful to where the company should go. they are demanding but in a good way to spark talent to react and perform. most people want to pursue excellence in all the do and it makes for some good team work.

Cons

the marketing department is a complete failure it seems - i go into stores now and then and somehow all the hard work of product teams, store teams, merchandising teams, and everyone trying to stay atop of the business and make it work gets lost - marketing can`t tell a story. cant share the direction the brand seems to be going in somehow due to lack leadership or talent. its very sad. internal communication is also not so great - yet surely if marketing was better imsure the excitment and message would be strong in all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

sometimes when it feels like nothing is working and you`ve looked at everything and everyone. look again. there`s something wrong. if your creating a shift in the product, the price, and your place of business as an enviroment - there needs to be a strategic plan in place to support that. or you`ll be forever handicapped. maybe its time to create a shift in marketing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to understand that just because someone is not being hovered over while they shop we are not doing a bad job. Sometimes people dont want your help/

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the customers to fulfil their needs and requirements that they came in for. making people happy was great.

    Cons

    Policy to work there, wages are not to be shared. This is bad because they could have many people doing the same job and not know that they are getting paid less then others there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you are getting paid what you deserve. You have to check up on your bonuses and wages to make sure they pay you correctly. They don't usually increase your wage unless you ask them for it.
