    I have been working at 1-800-Flowers.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Excellent growth and development opportunities
    - Great place to begin career or feel out new career endeavors

    Cons

    - Pay, benefits, 401K match program, hours, culture, turn-over

    - 1800Flowers offers great opportunities to grow but the climate is very stressful for low returns
    - The compensation packages are not competitive as they can be which does not help the turnover
    - 1800Flowers' culture breeds disengagement after about 2-5 years leading to high turnover especially for younger employees (<35)

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the greatest customers of your organization, your employees. Adapt to the times and cultures of more innovative companies.

    People, Experience for Young Employees, CEO and Founder are Great

    Pay, 401k, Benefits, Location, Low Ceiling

    I worked at 1-800-Flowers.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work at home with flexible hours and decent pay for easy work. Training and system were great and creating own schedule was the best.

    Cons

    No cons to really mention. It would have been nice to make more money, but the work is so minimal there are really no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front about expected hours during busy holidays and that to let people know to expect the job to be brutal at these times of year.

    Pros

    This company really thinks outside of the box. They also do a lot for their employees at headquarters. They try and keep everyone posted monthly on major events/projects/changes. They try and spotlight employees for achievements.

    Cons

    Bad middle management. There is still a good part of the organization that is still part of the "boys club". It is also more of who you know, not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees under you if they have more day to day experience with the job at hand.

    I worked at 1-800-Flowers.com full-time

    Pros

    During my time at 1-800 flowers I somewhat enjoyed myself. It is a Casual office friendly environment and valet parking.

    Cons

    Office is a lot older so it was difficult to make friends since everyone was a lot more senior which made growth opportunities difficult as well.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend more reviews to let people know how they are doing and being away of how many senior managers and VPs the company has.

    Pros

    Working from home, part time hours, shift give always or switching shifts was very easy.

    Cons

    Management is not very friendly, understanding, or professional. Employees are made fun of in front of others which is not professional or a good business practice.

    Advice to Management

    Help employees who you feel need help. Don't make fun of people and deal with individual employee issues in front of the entire team.
