    I have been working at Burlington Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive work environment. Company is striving to become an employer of choice. Professionals from many different companies are hired based upon not only experience and past success, but also personality and character traits that match the organizational goals and objectives, and core values of Burlington. Wide open door policy. Opportunity for growth here is immense. The teams the thing!

    Cons

    It is a good con to have, but...there is a lot of change going on at Burlington. So, there is a lot of disruption and plans may change often. The field management teams are settling in, but consistency between regions/territory should be improved and accountabilities made stronger. Other than that, this company is one of the best things to happen to my career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive operational consistensies to the corporate and field teams. Hold all managers accountable in their evaluations not only for sales, but for training requirements, operational metrics, loss prevention performance, health and safety, and even turnover, Also, I would advise slowing down a bit with new initiatives until we can get the current ones inplemented and settled. Otherwise, great job leading our company!

    I worked at Burlington Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discounts, Buyers are out of the office 2-3 days a week, Vacation Time

    Cons

    Management flip flops constantly about what this company is supposed to be, one minute they are a department store the next an off pricer. Buyers are blamed for sales when the stores look like a bomb went off in them and there is zero customer service. Lots of favoritism in this company, the ones who brown nose are promoted and the ones who work their butts off and try their hardest are put on PIP and let go. Moral is not great at all, although there are some great people at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to one up eachother and listen to your employees.
