    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Eddie Bauer full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Product discounts, working with a lot of great people at the store level.

    Cons

    No work life balance, no clear direction in the company, revolving door of policy changes, massive turnover, toxic culture from upper management, disappearing bonuses and pay increases, low morale seemed company wide.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction you want to take the company and stick with it. You’ve alienated your customer base trying to attract a younger crowd you haven’t captured. Stop hiking prices while making cheaper, lower quality products. Start treating your store managers and staff better. They are the face of your company.
