I have been working at New York & Company full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Great sample sales
-Great employee events

Cons

-Very high turnover rate, I have never been in a corporate environment where people just walk out. I have seen management come and go within two months. There is no sense of employee value and very few see this as a long term career choice.
-High pressure, high stress. Upper management feels like the same amount of work should be done with less people. They are very slow to hire after employees leave.
-Salary is low compared to other companys with the same positions. Excuse is company is trying to save money. I'm sure there is money available from all the people leaving.
