Senior Leaders are corrupt. HR is clueless.

Corporate Employee (Former Employee)
Corte Madera, CA

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

ProsThe product is exceptional. The discount is great.

ConsPeople get promoted only when they "play the game" and they push exceptional leaders, who challenge ways of thinking, out of the business.
Senior leaders are corrupt (and any that aren't have left the company i.e. the former CFO).
Senior leaders care only about their own careers/income and profit margins.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt isn't worth sharing advice because when the CEO is so corrupt, nothing will ever change.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The Kool-Aid has gone sour

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Restoration Hardware full-time for less than a year


Pros: 40% employee discount, though most employees couldn't afford the stuff… Cons: Absurd amount of corporate motivational brainwashing No guaranteed amount of hours Bullying… Advice to Senior Management: You are selling furniture. There are plenty of positive sweeping statements you can make about the impact of good design on people's home lives, but… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
