    Pros

    Awesome employee benefits- yoga and fitness classes, personal development and vision & goal coaching. Managers that invest in their people and create opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    It's still a retails business and there are times when being on the sales floor can be challenging.

  3. Fun. But maybe too much.

    Pros

    Got to workout and do yoga for free. Decent pay for retail. Good discount on their clothes. Meet some interesting individuals.

    Cons

    It was a very gossipy environment. It was also catty and faux inspirational. They basically wanted you to believe that you could change the world with their yoga pants; further, you had to repeat that message to the customers. Basically drink the kool-aid or get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Get more experienced and perhaps older/more mature store managers.

    Retail politics. Advancement is totally internal which makes it hard for new qualified people to get appropriate positions.

    Pros

    -Huge Employee Discounts
    -Make new friends
    -Workout Riembursments
    -God place to find yourself as a person

    Cons

    -Management isn't really interested in "listening"
    - Work Life balance only matters if it's a part of the surrounding community
    -Management is condescending
    -Everyone wants to be in authority because of the way everything is structured
    -Constant back chatter among the employees and management
    -Putdowns
    -Unreasonable write ups
    -Lack of Communication

    In this company everyone is made responsible for themselves, in which most of the time it's used against you.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes listening goes a long way, in order to communicate you have to be able to listen.

    Pros

    Fun environment, co workers have a great attitude, 60% discount on all items if full time 40% if part time

    Cons

    It easy for people to get their way. You are not allowed to talk about other coworkers so if they are doing something wrong and deny it, your out of luck.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay for educators and management.

    Pros

    work/play attitude and balance
    office culture
    great product
    companys want for you to excel and be the best you

    Cons

    Sometimes the "open" attitude could be a bit much, but holding each other responsible elevates the entire team. Very few cons.
