Pros

Everyone's smart and competent and it's a good place to work so people stay a long time.

Cons

Hard to branch out into combined strategic + analytic functions.

Advice to Management

The CEO needs to stop managing in a reactionary manner. Work from home was just cancelled out of a knee-jerk 'feeling' that people are taking advantage of this option. It's a slap-in-the-face to those who used this policy to balance extreme productivity with life's demands. Have more faith in your charges who are already working around the clock to do the best job possible.

    Pros

    Love the small business mentality of West Elm, but has the support of Williams-Sonoma. Great career pathing and training. Used to have Summer Fridays all year!

    Cons

    No more year-round Summer Fridays. :( Felt like a lot of promotion talk, but no action. Small bonuses and small raises. Hard to move up within and lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Need to maintain employees and make it easier to have a long-term career with the company - I would have loved to stay longer, but it was time for me to move upwards and onwards.

    I love working for Williams-Sonoma, but Corporate has very odd ideas of what is "best" for the company.

    Pros

    Great discount!, love working with the people at the store level! I think that you would really like to work at williams-sonoma if you like fast pace environments as well as somewhat often slow times.

    Cons

    Corporate, Corporate, Corporate. There vision for the company is to simply lose the power of the brand (although Pottery Barn and other companies within Williams-Sonoma, Inc. are doing fine) They are neglecting what this company was built upon.
