    Has the bones to be a great lifestyle company again.
    Takes design direction from pro athletes for their top line.
    Talented staff under the senior management.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past and struggling to move forward.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and listen to your talented staff.
    Re-evaluate the need for the amount of meetings.
    Be clear on your goals and don't change directions midway through projects and campaigns. Your staff spends most of their time reworking projects based on this issue.

    I worked at Eddie Bauer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    EB promotes a work life balance but doesn't really follow through.I would blame that on the store mangers and their capability on scheduling.I experienced first hand from managers I worked with lack of integrity, blame placing, no accountability, I've seen back stabbing at it's best. Store manager plays favoritism card, which in turn creates a toxic environment. It would help if the manager in charge actually recognized loyalty and hard work rather than the brown nosing that goes around.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many menial tasks that are thrown to the people in the retail stores. If the focus is on management selling there has to be a balance to find time to get actual DORs taken care of.
