I worked at Ethan Allen full-time (More than 8 years)
EA is a decent company, staffed with some exceptional people - really smart, talented, dedicated people.
Corporate culture there is prone to some of the usual complaints that plague other large organizations: some micro management, salary compression, lack of mobility in certain departments. If you aren't promoted in 3 to 5 years, it's time to move on, otherwise it can take a really, really long time.
Advice to Management
It's time for Farooq to give up at least one of his titles and let someone new take on some leadership role. I have the sense the company doesn't quite know who or what it is and where exactly it is going. Like it's tacking into the wind without making much forward progress.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ethan Allen in November 2017.
The interview was professional yet comfortable. It was a pleasant back and forth conversation between the interviewer and the applicant. My resume was printed and referred to throughout. The interviewer was engaged in the conversation and took few notes.
