    Rampant Inauthenticity and Hypocrisy Due to Unqualified, Immature Management

    Educator (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    Pros-free fitness classes
    -fun coworkers
    -good discount

    Cons-incredibly unqualified and inept managers
    -gossip masked as "feedback"
    -company "manifesto" lacks substance due to inconsistent implementation
    -poor scheduling inhibits intended "work-life balance"
    -cult-like atmosphere
    -rampant favoritism prevents advancement of more qualified, harder working employees
    -strict interaction guidelines and overall policies hinder guest experience
    -general lack of professionalism among those in higher positions
    -lack of clarity and transparency regarding guidelines for advancement
    **if you are in any way educated, mature, or self-assured, RUN.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more in-tune with what's happening in each retail store. Perhaps even clean house and externally hire more qualified store managers. This is a company, not a high school clique.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
