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

Pros

fun products, intelligent people who have been there for a while

Cons

everyone is very stuck in their way of doing things. no one is moving forward with the marketplace. middle/senior management don't understand the workflow at the bottom of the totem pole.

Advice to Management

keep the morale up!

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume because other companies know if you can stand working there you can stand working anywhere. Otherwise no Pros.

    Cons

    No personal growth, no respect for work life balance, forced overtime including weekends, forced to skip lunches. Vacations denied. Forced to come in sick as well as work overtime sick. Have to ask permission to leave every day. Oh and multiple employees cry in the bathroom, take mental leaves of absence or develop ulcers due to stress.

    Advice to Management

    Give better training . work in the field with the managers. work nights weekends and holidays like the field employees do. Don't keep backstabbers and brown nosers working for company
