    Pros

    This company is an original part of American luxury and holds a dear place in my heart. The true means of customer service is shown throughout the departments. The associate discount is a very nice part of this whole company.

    Cons

    Internal problems are always a constant but never seem to be resolved. There are many procedures that are dated and inhibit the customer from coming first. Favoritism is played throughout upper management that prevents lower tier workers from excelling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LEARN to show by doing. Don't expect an associate to do what you say but see you preach a different sermon. Higher management is the key to success in business and quality. Deming's 14 points are a great way in evaluate and constantly improve a stores method to perform. Transformation is everyone's job.
