I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great discount. WS is a great brand.

Cons

Not much opportunity for growth if you are stuck at the store level. Managers don't seem to be trained in looking for talent that might make for good long term career paths. Pay is terrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an eye out for talented people that might want to grow with the co. Don't insult us by offering a .25 increase in pay. Look for ways to recognize your performers. Catch the Spirit Award is nebulous award - shouldn't it be performance based at least partially? District manager would not know who I am even though I have worked at this store for over 3 years! They don't care.

    Pros

    Great product and dedicated associates.
    The best customer service model in the business.

    Cons

    Laura is not a replacement for Howard. She lacks the heart and passion for the brand she leads. She lacks the ethics and poise to be in her position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the core of what made WS best in class.
