    Pros

    Offices are comfortable. There is a great food service provider, prices are reasonable and the menu is diverse and creative. Decent employee discount.

    Cons

    Someof the senior managment lack insight as to a foward thinking company should operate.Many of the systems are out of date if not obsolete.There seems to be a conflict in management style with some of the new senior recruits. we'll see how this shakes out.

    Advice to Management

    Take the surveys seriously. Alot of time and effort is put into them. Simple fixes can be implemented rather quickly; however, there seems to be an effort to do nothing.

    Pros

    Brand name, good benefits, 401k, safe working conditions, long term employment opportunities, stable work, new management at the top of the company.

    Cons

    Not a family friendly place to work, they will try to convince you that this is a family friendly place but it is not. Overpopulated with women in management who only hire other women to work on their staff. bias towards men in QA management in NJ. Stale head of department in NJ, stuck in the company from 20 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe the lies from your management, hold more skip level interviews, find out the truth.

    Pros

    Certain Direct Sales Assistant Managers and trainers are genuinely good leaders and are very willing to mentor, discount was nice and Holidays were filled with food incentives!

    Cons

    Contradictory and biased approach to retaining talent. Subculture is obviously a factor in job security, i.e. *Kim Desarno & Will Bragger...performance and attendance doesn't apply to Job Security if your not their type of people. Transparent racist and bias behaviors.

    Advice to Management

    Pay commission to your Sales & Service reps and stop exploiting people. Utilize your training class to also set clear and defined expectations when it comes to procedures such as cancelling and re-entering orders, sales conversion, and average handle time. STOP PLAYING FAVORITISM, AND LOOKING FOR HIDDEN REASONS TO DISMISS MINORITIES . In training it was indicated that building on people's strengths was a means to develop talent, yet u let some of the overall better performers go in an attempt to maintain a certain "image", it's obvious the favorable people met a criteria that had nothing much to do with some of the metrics that were claimed as the platform for performance as far as attendance, conversion, and quality it was clearly evident that the company has a hidden set of preferences in its hiring and retention practices. WE ALL KNOW THE PEOPLE THAT DIDNT RANK often, had attendance issues, and poor quality scores you choose to keep! But all the Minorities, black males, and top sellers got cut. BE for real!

    Pros

    Interesting place to work. If you are on the sales or merchandising side, things are always fun. Pretty good hours except that you don't get a lot of time off, but that is typical for retail.

    Cons

    If you are on the support side (finance, IT, etc) there are limited opportunities for advancement and pay is a bit below average.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying bonuses to levels below manager.

    Pros

    Looks very good on your resume
    Great place to gain experience, but not to work permanently
    The employee store discount is phenomenal
    Lots of free food, pretty much all events are celebrated with food
    Flexible hours
    Nice discount in the store

    Cons

    Promotion is generally based upon blatant favoritism
    Health insurance is pricey
    No 401k match
    Minimal vacation time and sick pay
    Temp workers are maintained for years before receiving a permanent position generally
    Pay is not up to par with market
    Benefits/discounts package is not up to par with other luxury retail employers
    No Annual Bonus
    Not very many paid holidays

    Advice to Management

    Please chose a structure. It is very difficult to understand the over all flow of the company, its very archaic. Some departments are over staffed while others are scantily staffed. For example, a team of 4 four does not need a manager and supervisor. Too many managers. There is virtually no communication between departments. Train management to interact more with employees and understand the flaws in the process. IT is horrible, when there is a great IT contractor they leave, because they are not treated well. There need to be metrics upon which you review your employees, favoritism is not a good way to measure work ethic. Managers are the only employees that receive bonuses yet they work from home every Friday, and during holidays are pretty much scarce. Many managers have no idea what the team does that they are managing, they demonstrate difficulties making decisions, and have no clue as to what the work flow is of their teams. A lot of money is lost by the company due to the inefficiency of business processes, employees have to repeat a process in multiple departments before an order can be processed, etc. Please show some respect for your employees working hard during the holiday and give them a bonus. Create a structure for management and non management to be paid for performance and efficiency. You will lose most of your talented employees because management waits very long to promote or permanently hire employees. Most of the people that are promoted rapidly are siblings of managers, family members, or acquaintances, neighbors; this will be your demise if you do not really look at the quality of workers you currently have, and how they got into their positions.

    Pros

    Very friendly atmosphere
    Hours very flexible (come in and leave when you want as long as you hit the 8.5 hrs)
    Staff is very eager to help you
    Cafeteria food is awesome.

    Cons

    As an intern, you run out of work very quickly. You then have to wait for more work to come in.
    As a full time employee, depending on your position in the company you will have to work over night shifts or weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less interns so there is more work for the fewer amount of interns
