Advice to Management

More kisses

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Urban Outfitters full-time for more than a year

Pros

Nice office / campus, lots of employee perks and you can bring your dog. Good benefits and employee discounts with other local vendors. No official summer fridays though generally a lot of people... work from home on fridays all year, and depending on your manager you can usually leave early.

Cons

You will have to move to Philly to work here. Open office concept can be noisy / annoying at times but not a huge deal

Advice to Management

Kate Phelps’ buying team has a very high turnover because she is extremely difficult to work for and with. She is rude to her employees and not good at communicating in general - from her... expectations to how something should be done, etc. Sadly this will continue as long as she oversees most of women’s. I was lucky to not work under her but witnessed the problems first hand.
