I have been working at Ethan Allen full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Quality product, fun position working with clients who need design assitance.

Cons

Constant pressure,especially in this economy with too many monthly bechmarks and reviews. Commissions were cut, adding to the stress of making a living.

Advice to Management

Less micro managing. Quarterly reviews, versus monthly reviews and benchmarks.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Ethan Allen full-time

    Pros

    The business is at least air conditioned

    Cons

    The significant turnover of designers speaks volumns as to the companies disassociation with it's employees. Deals are routinely stolen from eachother with no check by management, it is really everyone for themselves...anything goes! Tenure makes no difference as the management has a way to squeeze out even the best by their non involvement. It's MicroManaging at it's best. The local management is a pure joke and the Scottsdale Az store is an embarassment and the center of the worst Ethan Allen represents.

    Advice to Management

    Not much can be said on a corporate level...it all starts at the top!
