    I worked at Barneys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great networking opportunities
    Wonderful clients
    Amazing support staff

    Cons

    The Seattle location is a bit of a mess in my opinion.
    Rarely is management on the sales floor.
    Management seems to lack the basic understanding of how to treat a luxury customer and frequently sides will corporate guidelines lines over the customer.
     Coworkers are very cliquey and judgmental in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to chico's or other large chain store.
