    I have been working at Ethan Allen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Able to use design education, The design center is very pretty.

    Cons

    Regional and store management lack professionalism. Open door policy is a joke. Company does not back their designers & will throw them under bus at any opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    CEO is extremely out of touch with how the stores are run. Designers are on 100% commission and any and all issues including shipping, delivery, manufacturing, installation problems come out of designers commission, even when the designer has no control over them and they do all the work to sell the furniture. the system is not working and extremely unfair to the designers. Who , with out, there would be no furniture to produce. Wake up MFK and change the system. Hold manufacturing and shipping accountable for their own mistakes and stop taking it out of my pay!
