I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time

Pros

Strong sense of culture and history; high-integrity people who want to do the right thing; well positioned in the industry and in an industry segment (home goods) that should continue to do well as the economy recovers; great balance between eCommerce and Store retail; lots of reasons why the company should be successful going forward; based in downtown San Francisco

Cons

Company is very design and merchant driven. If you are not in the design / merchandising areas, then you need to understand your role in the bigger context.

    Decent work/life balance, however heavy on tenured talent which makes it difficult to move up.

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Relative to other employers I have had, the work/life balance is healthy. Benefits were great.

    Cons

    The company operates from a defensive position. New ideas are not always welcomed. Salary was lower than most other retailers in the area, which contributed to loss of talent. Tenure dominates promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase average salary at the associate level to retain talent.

    Pros

    Great culture. Management team is friendly and supportive. Good pay and benefits. Work load is manageable. Early Friday release during summer!

    Cons

    some of their offices physical condition is shameful. For being a fine home furnishing corporation, the condition of their corporate offices is less then desirable. We have had a leak in the ceiling for over a year and no one bothers to fix it.
