Pros

Liked the product line. Enjoyed my team. Enjoyed connecting with customers and building relationships. Liked the design aspect of the job.

Cons

Harsh environment created by upper leadership. So numbers focused that employees and customers get forgotten. Not enough payroll to meet expectations.

Advice to Management

Raise payroll or lower expectations. You already have high turnover in the field and it is going to increase as the job market gets better.

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

    Pros

    - Good core product philosophy
    - Beautiful stores and quality goods
    - 40% employee discount
    - Location with parking

    Cons

    - Depending on what department you're in or who you work with, it can be very political
    - Too much gossip
    - Cliquey
    - Management plays favorites
    - Unless you brown-noser your manager, you will most likely stay in your current position for years.
    - Pitiful blanket bonus and raise

    Advice to Management

    - Care about employees as individuals, not only who you directly work with but if you manage a team, don't make it obvious that you only like some certain people.
    - That means spend time one on one with team members and provide training.
