I worked at Urban Outfitters full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lively, interesting, constantly changing, can always stay busy so you never get bored, great company discount if you're a shopper

Cons

Staff members are replaceable unless they're at the top of the totem pole so unless you're all in, you may not want to think of it as a long term job.

Advice to Management

Better support for motivated staffers--at lower levels--would certainly help with employee retention. I always felt disposable even though I was a hard worker and was dedicated to the company.
