Toxic work environment and incompetent leaders

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Corte Madera, CA

ProsSample sales, anyone below the level of director were really good to work with, amazing products and decent pay.

ConsIf you like working for uninspiring and incompetent leaders who only care about how high up the ladder they can reach...than this is place for you!

Most of the leaders lack the basic knowledge of how to do their jobs which will make you wonder if any of them really went to college and their level of incompetence will also cause you to constantly muttering the phrase "Really, you really want me to do that!?" Trust me, it happens more times than you would think. For example, I had to plan my department's budget on several occasions because my boss didn't know how to do basic math. They don't care about their employees and the core values are constantly thrown in your face if you ever question them. Decisions are constantly changed at the last hour and as a result you're always doubling your efforts on projects, which is why the average work day is 10-12 hours.

A work life balance is non-existant and the frequency of people suffering from stress related illnesses have gone up in the past couple of years. Because of that the turnover rate is extremely high and many talented people have left the company–some have even quit without finding a new job and currently the company is having a hard time filling positions because of their reputation for burning out people.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo some serious house cleaning and restructuring. Restoration Hardware can become a great company to work at with the right people at the helm.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointed in "core values" and mis-representation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    I worked at Restoration Hardware part-time for more than a year
