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 ManagementAdvice

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

    When I started Pottery Barn was more like Cost Plus. There was plenty to be done and if you could take stuff on you were given the ok and eventually rewarded. Changed careers there twice with support of management. Very pro female environment.

    Cons

    Very pro female environment. Slow to hire. Slow to give promotions. Not great at listening. Higher management thinks they know what the customer wants and doesn't listen good enough to new ideas and feedback.
