I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time (more than a year)

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.

    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.

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenges and sales competitions between sales associates within your store, region and company with fantastic prizes and incentives. Great team of employees and management. Fantastic company discount. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Stress and demand of holiday season and retail. This goes without saying with any retailer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fantastic work environment, exciting opportunity to grow within company.
