    I have been working at Bloom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonably flexible work hours. Working from home is acceptable when necessary to work around family commitments.
    Opportunities for professional development are good. Bloomberg supports engagement with conferences and standards committees.

    Cons

    The work areas are open (i.e., no cubicles or offices). Noise from colleagues can sometimes be distracting.

    Management is great, In house advancement was common, giving incentive to employees.

    Shifts were sometimes odd hours and made personal interest difficult to pursue.

    Pros

    Benefits, remodeled stores, pay is OK, I like the associates I work with, quarterly bonus (when it's paid on time)

    Cons

    Little or no connection with upper management (VP), constantly changing directions, everything is a priority, propaganda of 24% increase in sales if we connect with each guest - LOL

    Advice to Management

    stop cutting hours in the stores and reduce our overhead! We have 3 VP's for 64 stores! Figure out who we want to be and let's do it!

    Overall a good place to work; would just like a little more communication between management and employees.
