    I worked at World Kitchen as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was given a chance to work with mulitple teams, cross channel, that offered cretive thoughts around buisness.

    Cons

    There is not a marketing deparment in place with a strong point of view or a view that is not based in an "80's" mind set.

    Advice to Management

    Allow all members of upper team to have buy in on drivers and direction. Do not allow smaller, inner office issues to detract from the goal set for company.

    I have been working at World Kitchen part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was out of work a couple different times for personal problems and they always left their door open for me to come back. It is a great company to work for and I feel like it is a tight knit group.

    Cons

    Sometimes they expect way to much out of for the pay that you receive. They focus so much on customer service that I dont think should be a main concern seeing that your selling plates and bowls not wedding rings and cars.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to do favoritism or group up with employees making "clicks" Cutting someones hours to get them to quit is wrong.
