I have been working at Restoration Hardware part-time for less than a year

Pros

The discount is great except as an employee they typically don't pay you enough to be able to afford anything. Some of the people are fun and interesting.

Cons

- Low compensation especially for the Bay Area
- Lack of flexibility in the work place
- No work/life balance
- The only way to get things done is to yell at people
- Execs make so many last minute changes that are financially ridiculous which causes many individuals to work long hours and not make deadlines
- They emphasize these "core values" yet none of the employees actually embody them
- Constant turnover of staff
- Lack of direction from upper management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should find someone who has any financial sense and put them in management

    I worked at Restoration Hardware for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some of my co-workers and customers were amazing.

    Cons

    Home office: A nightmare. The district leader for the outlets has zero personnel skills. Treated store associates with utter distain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shoving the cult-like Core Values down everyone's throat. Or at the very least: practice what you preach.

    I have been working at Restoration Hardware full-time

    Pros

    The folks you work with are good and they are smart so that is a positive. The discount is nice if you have the $$ to afford the items.

    Cons

    Way too much work and nowhere near enough balance. Not enough people to get the job done but the culture is such that you are encouraged to throw yourself on the grenade over and over again.
