    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Expert associates. Great challenges. Wonderful customer base. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is low. Management is a shark tank. Misguided . Policy changes over night. Micro managed and stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Relax. Stop selling "Made in China" inferior products. Respect your associates and customers. You really do get what you pay for. The company is extremely indecisive. Make a plan and stick with the plan.

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love working at Williams and Sonoma. The job is alot of fun and the people are great. You meet the most wonderful people and we get great tips and ideas from our customers. The discount is wonderful. This job is one of the most wonderful and enjoyable I have ever had. I hate to think of going anywhere else. I am a very loyal person to the company I work for, but these latest round of payroll cuts has me very frustrated.

    Cons

    The current upper management does not appear to care about the employees or their customers. Stores are being asked to cut more and more of their payroll and continue to do the same if not more work. It is getting harder to give the service we need to give our customers with less and less payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to look at what this is doing to their stores and to their customers.
