Great job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Urban Outfitters

ProsGreat atmosphere and you get to work with some really creative, artistic, friendly people. Your talents are recognized and there is alot of opportunity to grow within the company.

ConsThey pay is alright. Fairly difficult to promote deopending on store size. Management can seem difficult or unresponsive, sometimes unnaproachable.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more responsive and understanding of employees. Don't play favorites and be willing to invest time into those interested in promoting. Recognize thise that go the extra mile.
