Happy that I left this place

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

if you like 40 % discounts on a pink dotted bean bag you definitely should join this company

Cons

disrespectful, arrogant and strongly über-self-opinionated senior co-workers and managers
No room for growth, culture of secrecy, cronyisms and double standards, had been kept totally in the dark and being used as a Guiana pig.
At one time my manager even backstabbed me by advising a co-work not to release certain information I was asking the co-worker for and I would have needed for my project.
Blame culture, no team work but divide and conquer approach

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practise your advertised "People first" slogan
