    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love the associates I work with and their eagerness to help customers. Great associate discount for their products. Wouldn't want to work for any other retailer with similar products.

    Cons

    Love my manager, but she needs help keeping signage current for displayed products. Some displays not functioning properly, such as salt and pepper mills, displaying products without all their parts, such as oven racks. I realize that's because of fear of customer stealing, but there has to be a way to display products better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep this manager by all means. She is a very hard worker and eager to please customers and employees.

    I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When I started Pottery Barn was more like Cost Plus. There was plenty to be done and if you could take stuff on you were given the ok and eventually rewarded. Changed careers there twice with support of management. Very pro female environment.

    Cons

    Very pro female environment. Slow to hire. Slow to give promotions. Not great at listening. Higher management thinks they know what the customer wants and doesn't listen good enough to new ideas and feedback.
