    Pros

    There are fun sample sales in which you can get fun gifts for loved ones.

    Cons

    Very disorganized due to the sheer number of individualized assortments that need to be planned.

    Advice to Management

    Group your Merchants by store type so they can find a common base for their Merchandise and build in a smaller amount of individualized inventory.

    I worked at Event Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers! The venues are awesome, fabulous partnerships! There are very hard working, sincere middle management and workers in the home office that want to help you be successful. Though many of the really good ones are gone now.

    Cons

    Mismanaged, no true focus. Leadership flipflops all over. They never truly stick to anything, policies change with the weather. The talk a good talk about culture but do not walk the walk. On the surface they seem great, beware it is not the reality.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk, quit trying to find the next quick fix and focus on getting your core fundamentals right and then stick with them. Treat your employees like you say you do in your values. Learn basic retail core functions on how to run a stores and corporate offices. Quit being fickle.
