    I have been working at Restoration Hardware

    Pros

    After one year you can get an opportunity to get health care plan. You also might have a chance to be promoted to a manager after few years of work. They also got paid vocation time off.

    Cons

    Basically no challenges, just routine work.

    Pros

    The 40% discount that the employes get.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge of working at Restoration Hardware is their culture. If you buy into their "cult like" culture, you will be fine. They have everyday meetings called " Core Values Meeting" which are little surprises everyday. A good day is when they discuss product or anything business related, but that doesn't happen too often. Usually they want you to tell them something about your life, and possibly cry, so you can really have a good start to your day. Crazy!!!! We were also brought outside and were made to observe and listen to a piece of chocolate and grape. I'm not kidding!!!!! The people running the meetings are the so called leaders( managers). So, if they hire a crazy one, and believe me, they do, well... Then good luck!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more experienced people to lead. A lot of the " leaders" are there experimenting with people.

    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.

    Co-Workers are like family, Compensation is at or above Industry standards, Leadership is always willing to help.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fun work environment, inspiring products with a huge product line. I met some great people that have become good friends.

    Cons

    Low pay and the only benefit is high health insurance. Ever since I started all I hear are the career opportunities. I'm always told exactly what I want to hear, but nothing ever happens. They claim to live and breath core values, but it's all talk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop dangling a carrot. Show your employees you care and want them to stay.

    Pros

    The friendship of teammates and beautiful work environment.

    Cons

    Low pay & lack of training and support. Field leadership was nonexistent. Arrogant attitude and bullying are common practice. The values are all talk and if you have an opinion keep it to yourself. They want people with no opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend your time with your teams. Building rapport and with training for all levels of team members. Enough with the conference calls...too much talk, not enough action or support.
