    Wonderful place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsI loved the collaborative sharing of ideas and then taking the ideas on as projects to implement. I loved the people I worked with.

    ConsFinancial resources can be limited to be able to implement projects.
    No raises due to financial constraints.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to give raises to your salaried people since they are the most loyal.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Open Workplace With a Good Balance Between Familial and Workplace Atmospheres

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI really enjoy the brand that I'm promoting when I'm on the salesfloor. The clothes wear beautifully and are unique; sharing that opinion with customers allows me to connect with them much easier. I also have a great relationship with my boss, but that has nothing to do with brand!

    ConsUnfortunately, our store is ridiculously small, and it seems like we get sent much more clothes than we could ever possibly fit!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great company, great work/life balance, growing pains of a small company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAttainable goals, great corporate leadership (director of stores especially), family first attitude, no reason to work overtime to keep your store looking great, great feedback/encouragement from upper management, adorable clothing, fantastic clients, clean stores, happy employees for the most part.

    ConsLack of consistency in accountability. There are established rules, but no consequences for those that don't follow them. It makes a manager that follows the rules quite frustrated.

     There is a "cheap" or penny pinching attitude to every aspect of the company. All positions are vastly underpaid, (which you sort of don't mind when you only work your 40 hours and go home), but managers are expected to generate sales through grass roots marketing with NO marketing budget and a very tight payroll schedule. The result is that we end up marketing the company in our free time when that should be time reserved for family. It's not work that requires us to be in store, but we should be able to unplug when we leave.

    Communication between corporate and the field is atrocious. The left hand NEVER knows what the right hand is doing.

    Product is beyond precious, but has some major issues.

    District Trainers are expected to travel to train new managers and are offered no pay increase.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in your talent. A lot of the communication has felt crafty and like a carrot being dangled in front of me. I like encouragement, but I like it more when it's backed up by something, like a promotion or a pay raise.

    I shouldn't feel like I'm working harder than other people at my level for the same amount of pay.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I Love my job.

    ProsGreat Manager!
    Friendly environment ; Great starter job
    Easy work .. very laid back.
    Great to work while in school.

    ConsNot too much room for advancement.
    Depending on your store ; you could be overworked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more incentives to workers. Make them want to be the best they can.

    Small, But Growing Company - Cute Clothing - Plenty to Do

    Graphic Designer (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsGood Benefits. Good experience. Prestigious Responsibilities.

    ConsNo retirement benefits. No investment benefits. Limited budget. No part time available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMany of the employees are working more than 40 hours per week & feeling overwhelmed. If possible, allow for some additional part-time help to come in and lift some of the burden. Treat employees well & they will treat you well in return.

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