A great place to work

Director (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time for more than 8 years

ProsIf you like working hard this is the place to be. Lot of opportunities and lots to get done.

ConsThis place is always trying to do too much in too short a time and half the costs. So extremely challenging environment. There is never a dull or a lull moment.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo knee jerk reactions. Have a plan and stick to it

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
