Store Systems needs to improve and acknowledge employees

Programmer Analyst III (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time for less than a year

ProsGood people, nice retail experience, good location, shuttile pickup from Bart and Cal Train

ConsPeople leave left and right.. Promotions are based on years of experience and projects worked on last year rather than how you performed. Under performers are in constant fear and were given unrealistic targets before sacking them on a friday eve. Still uses Windows XP, world around you is changing. E-com is not your only

Advice to Senior ManagementWS is a great company with a great history and has a lot of value in the market. IT dept needs to focus on performers. People worked in the same technology for last 15 years cannot change overnight to a new one. It takes time and needs some time. Canteen needs some subsidized food.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
