Pros

Great people! Genuinely nice work atmosphere, where you can feel valued and empowered. Nice perks, like a fantastic cafeteria. Company is a leader in employee wellness initiatives and loyalty marketing programs.

Cons

It's corporate. Jeans are a special occasion. It's retail, so pace can be hectic. Salaries don't compete with the higher-flying tech world in the valley, but living expense are the same for all.

Advice to Management

Foster more genuine open dialogue with your execs. Ask for some disagreement, encourage real discussion and seek real input from others on the big strategic ideas.

    Pros

    decent pay for starting out, not to live off of for the rest of your life

    Cons

    hour cuts, more expected, less time to do it

    Advice to Management

    clean up on poor management. If you have a dept or store manager that has problems with EVERYONE they are the problem, not everyone else.


  2. It can be an okay place to work, but not the best or worst.

    Pros

    You can work where you shop.

    Cons

    Often working in a stressful environment due to high volume and not enough staff. (in the case of this location)

    Advice to Management

    Take more time and care to listen to both customers and employees. I often felt that like i was just brushed aside and it took a lot of effort just to get management's attention about something.
