    I worked at Anthropologie full-time

    Pros

    Creative employees, beautiful campus, friendly people, decent health benefits, and good employee discount
    It feels like you are part of something very special and unique, getting to work amongst such talented colleagues.
    Everyone is very friendly and make you feel instantly part of the team.
    There is a great mix of age and ethnicities, making it a very diverse environment.
    It does not hurt that there are puppies everywhere.
    The cafeteria and gym are a plus, although it can get pricey. (gym is free)

    Cons

    Work hours are long and sometimes there is very little flexibility.
    Upper management lacks communication and sometimes you hardly ever see or hear from your boss or head of department with positive or negative feedback. Anything is better than nothing.
    Maternity leave is considered a disability and the company has an outside insurance company determine your eligibility. ( you are only eligible for paid maternity leave after 1 year at the company) Only 4 weeks paid at 60% for v- birth and 6 weeks paid at 60% for c-section. One is led to believe that you get 6 weeks paid for V and 8 weeks for C, but the first 2 weeks of disability are NOT paid. They do not explain this to you during the orientation and it's misleading. Very Poor maternity leave especially since there are so many woman that work at this company and a lot of them are young, getting married and starting families.
    Not much room for growth as departments do not intermix with one another to create relationships and opportunities in other fields within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please look at a company like facebook's maternity policy because in this day and age, women should be given at least 3 months of full paid time off after having a child. Facebook gives both mom and dad a full 4 months full paid time off after having a baby. It is by far the hardest, most difficult time in a woman's life and it is also expensive to pay for diapers and pay for your medical bills after hospital and prenatal appts with only 4-6 weeks pay at 60%. It may be time to reevaluate and rewrite your maternity policy.
    Seek out fostering relationships and communication with all of the employees below you. Even a hello and a few words of encouragement could make your whole year!

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very positive environment. The clothes are adorable and everyone works together very well. And the candles are great.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of. It takes a little bit of work to figure out the online system if you need to request off.

    Pros

    Loved my team. Fun atmosphere. People for the most part really want to do well at their job, so always feel supported!

    Cons

    District managers play favorites and won't promote if they don't like you (even if they dont really know you), even if other managers do like you. Like to "train" by giving more and more responsibilities, but without compensation and no guarantee to promotion- A lot of false promises.
