    I have been working at Pottery Barn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are some of the hardest working folks in the business. Good friends have been made here.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is hi-volume, high stress work, very poor compensation, poor health benefits - salary structure is immobile, rewards for good work are non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Remove middle managers who only add to the chaos, support the people who work hard to make deliverables accurately and on-time. Improve the health benefits package to cover the basics and emergency care.
