Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Williams-Sonoma full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Looks good on a resume because other companies know if you can stand working there you can stand working anywhere. Otherwise no Pros.

Cons

No personal growth, no respect for work life balance, forced overtime including weekends, forced to skip lunches. Vacations denied. Forced to come in sick as well as work overtime sick. Have to ask permission to leave every day. Oh and multiple employees cry in the bathroom, take mental leaves of absence or develop ulcers due to stress.
