    Pros

    Absolute best culture in a retail setting, challenging and stimulating, competitive pay, brilliant level of communication from every aspect of corporate, voice is heard and valued, upward growth is heavily encouraged, a setting where growth is a holistic approach and you feel the company stands behind you.

    Cons

    Truly there are none I can think of. Even during periods of growth, culture is thoroughly kept intact and cherished.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being impeccable

    I have been working at Bonobos part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a very transparent company that is non-commissioned. This promotes a less competitive environment to work in and allows more collaboration as a whole sales unit. The store floor is always changing and the work is never monotonous. It is a very dynamic job for the retail works. I would highly recommend working at Bonobos. It is by far the best employer I have worked for.

    Cons

    Very hard to sell the product and familiarize the customers with the different-than-normal model. The product has a high price point as well.

    Cons

    No cons as such but building good relations with your seniors and other teams is important and crucial to grow.

    Pros

    Really invests in their employees and takes the time to find good people. The most positive retail experience I've ever had. I could never go back to regular retail.

    Cons

    I really don't have any!

    Pros

    The product is amazing, the fit is superb and the customer interactions will make you want to walk through the doors every shift.

    Cons

    The public image Walmart has on the general public is something you'll have to rebuttle with talking to casual customers.

    Pros

    Novel opportunities to grow if you're scrappy

    Cons

    Cons of any smaller org - if you're not used to evolving systems and processes, prob not for you.

    I worked at Bonobos full-time

    Pros

    Bonobos has found the secret sauce to stellar work culture; furthermore attracted incredible people by placing culture at the helm of its hiring process. Expect to be surrounded by motivated, hungry, inspiring people that believe in changing mens apparel and online retail. Moving on from Bonobos has made me reflect on the what most companies fail to do; make a job feel less like a job, and instead a place where you truly feel you can be yourself.

    Cons

    Tough to find growth in IT. Proper leveling, roles, and upward mobility was not in place at the time. I suspect this is because the IT team was historically one person, and leadership wasn't fully prepared for net new roles over time.

    Pros

    Great team. Awesome product. Company very up to date on standards and processes

    Cons

    Very slow for a full time job. Not being challenged enough. Would only see maybe 2 customers between 11am-5pm on weekdays (even in the city on a major shopping neighborhood) . Which really isn’t the companies “fault” but it makes sense as it is men’s retailer - most men would be at thier work place from this time frame!

    Pros

    Higher hourly than most retailers

    Cons

    Horrible hours, horrible management, lack of empathy for employees, lots of time with nothing to do

    Advice to Management

    Try actually caring about your employees as human beings, not just a means of making numbers. Also actually being on the floor instead of face timing all day.
