    I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generous discount, payscale about industry standards and you work with wonderful clients.

    Cons

    Work life balance is very challenging due to the nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on work life balance, the number of black outs at times causes the store to be short staffed during non events and over staffed during event.
