I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great discount/Salary above the market average

Cons

Mgmt in distribution and logistics is good old boys club. If you don't fit their demographic, forget about career advancement. HR turns out to be a puppet to the other parts of the organization.

Advice to Management

More cooperation between Memphis and corporate.

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love the small business mentality of West Elm, but has the support of Williams-Sonoma. Great career pathing and training. Used to have Summer Fridays all year!

    Cons

    No more year-round Summer Fridays. :( Felt like a lot of promotion talk, but no action. Small bonuses and small raises. Hard to move up within and lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Need to maintain employees and make it easier to have a long-term career with the company - I would have loved to stay longer, but it was time for me to move upwards and onwards.
