ProsThere is great talent and opportunity at Williams-Sonoma with their network of brands and the quality of professionals that attracts.

ConsThey processes are backwards and very slow, they are not open to change, and the upper management makes approvals difficult and is quick to point fingers when business gets tough instead of pulling their teams together.

Advice to Senior ManagementPurge some creative leaders and look for freshness in leadership that will take Williams-Sonoma to a new level for the 21st century.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
