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

    Pros

    The customers are exceptional. The products are exceptional.

    Cons

    Unrealistic workload for all members of the field. I have 25 years as a retail manager and I have never been so challenged to balance an unrealistic workload with such a unbalanced payroll budget. So many good people have left WS over the last few years because of this and other unreasonable expectations. I loved my time when I first started with WS, but the last three years left me drained and working at another company. The support for the field is not there.

    Advice to Management

    Profits over people always cost more in the end. I hope someone wakes up and smells the espresso.
