    Pros

    Good benefits, good work life balance, excellent training, company encouraged you to move forward and advance into other areas.

    Cons

    Although, you were encouraged to advance there was no opportunity. Many positions were filled from the outside. The company eliminated the entire visual merchandising department with no notice. Several people were hand picked for positions. All others were told to reapply and they would be considered, but most never received responses for their requests

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down on change. You may find you have done too much too fast, and the company will falter.

    Pros

    Discounts, room for growth. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Not great discounts. You can wear the jewelry at work. It would be great if the employee discount was higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting the right store managers and training them to be great leaders.

    Pros

    Great product, great training tools, good pay and nice benefits. Going to work everyday and it seems different. Different interaction with customers makes it fun. Nice benefits for store manager. Laid back during non peak times and overall fun environment!

    Cons

    Bad communication from corporate. Restructure of higher positions always changing. Not enough consistency from corp and DM's. So much last minute things happening, such as events, jewelry retiring and merchandising. Lack of growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication from the top. Getting things right the first time. Understanding what it is like to work in a store.

    Care more about your employees, it will only benefit you more if they feel cared for.

    Pros

    Significant discount. Pandora is constantly revamping the jewelry line to keep up with the current trends.

    Cons

    Pandora corporate makes everyone on the store level the "middle-men." They set forth policies to be upheld in the store and refuse to take back certain merchandise. Then when the customer calls corporate to complain, Pandora takes the item(s) back. Poor communication and lack of partnership.

    Pros

    They offer very great benefits at corporate, but that is really all I can think of. Ravens games, Verizon Center tickets, etc.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity for advancement. They will hire outside before they consider promoting.

  11.  

    If you're looking for somthing temporary do it. Don't expect a career.

    Pros

    Good for part time work, great people (sales) to work with. It's fun to be able to put jewelry pieces together.

    Cons

    There is a very large disconnect between corporate and the markets of the different stores. They don't provide the tools needed to succeed. They do not appreciate good employees and give poor incentives for good work. Horrible work/life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn about effective marketing, the treasure of good workers, and set goals that are SMART.
