    I love the culture of this company! Once we get some of the back-of-house operations tweaked we will be unstoppable!

    Pros

    sample sales, um....sample sales. That's it

    Cons

    Toxic environment where bullies run rampant. You're expected to work 24/7 with insurmountable amounts of work while negotiating department politics. Upper management has no interest in doing any real work, just delegating and working on "high level" strategy. Executives are not in touch with what the employees want/need. You're expected to cut costs so that there is more cash to move into the next real estate venture or lame whim of the CEO (like RH Music, RH Wine..). No spending where it's really needed, like systems enabling us to do our jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some "honest and open feedback": look at who is actually doing the work and reward those people. Get rid of the bullies. Be more selective before you just throw money at a new venture.

    Pros

    Company/CEO had it's finger on the pulse of aspirational home decor. Prices and quality went up just as the economy went bust and they succeeded.

    Cons

    As with many companies, they tout a people first environment. To be successful, you had to have no personal life outside the company. Being available 24/7 was required.

    Pros

    RH is growing quickly, this is such a fun time to part of the company. I love that RH is innovated and believes they can achieve anything. As an associate one of the great things is our associate discount on merchandise.

    Cons

    Some challenges working at RH is the fast pace environment, sometimes things move so fast you have to keep up and be able to change directions quickly.

    Pros

    The people you work with are what makes this a special place to work. You have the opportunity to share your ideas with any level of leadership. Values based company that truly believes in their Core Values and incorporates them in the decision making.

    Cons

    Total benefit package is steadily improving as the company continues to have success, but not yet on par with it's competitors and similar sized companies in the Bay Area. This is an area of opportunity for the company that I hope, and believe, they address.

    Pros

    The people! Everyone who works here is awesome! The best group of people around!
    Everyone really lives the values. It't not like other companies that talk about them but don't live them.
    The location is amazing. Easy commute and beautiful campus.

    Cons

    A better benefits selection would be nice.

    I have been working at Restoration Hardware as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I love working for Restoration Hardware because management constantly makes me feel like my work is vital to the success of the company. I really enjoy working in such a creative environment. My work is always interesting and almost never repetitive. I feel like the day I got this job was a pivotal point in my life.

    Cons

    I have a brutal commute but that is not Restoration Hardwares fault. I plan on moving for this job and I love my house.

    I have been working at Restoration Hardware full-time

    Pros

    The best thing about working for RH by far are the people. Everyone is very passionate about the brand and pushing our company to the next level. The values are a big part of RH culture and you definitely feel that working here. Every day is different and it's a company that moves quickly, but values opinions of everyone, regardless of level. It's exciting to work for a company who isn't following other companies - and who takes risks.

    Cons

    RH is not super structured - so things can be a little chaotic at times. There are a lot of last minute changes so you need to be able to be very flexible.

    Pros

    Restoration Hardware has changed dramatically since I joined back in 2012, and all for the better. The company is growing, we are adding tons of employees, and the innovative new product lines we have created have established us as a one-of-a-kind company. Transferring within the company is encouraged and promotions are always looked at first rather than recruiting externally. Growth potential is huge in this company because of the many different departments that we keep adding. The work space has all been newly remodeled and all of the offices are decorated in RH furniture with our signature "Resto grey" on the walls. It truly is an amazing place to work!

    Cons

    I do not have anything negative to say about RH. We are continuing to better ourselves as we grow. There are always things that can improve, such as benefits, but I am perfectly content with what we are offered.
