    Pros

    Discounts and helping women feel beautiful

    Cons

    PAY, bonus system, upper management

    Advice to Management

    When someone steps up to give MORE than ever expected of them due to emergency health issues by others....pay them back with raises and HELP when trying to transfer within the company due to a move.

    Pros

    Great people and decent discount

    Cons

    People work really hard and are not appreciated for it. They “promoted” store managers to general managers but the only real difference was the managers now have to be in charge of multiple stores. Assistance managers have to pick up many responsibilities and our not compensated fo it.

    Advice to Management

    Give decent raises to dedicate and hard-working employees.

    I have been working at Soma Intimates part-time

    Pros

    -Customers are great (rarely get difficult ones at my location)
     -Discounts are good in my opinion, especially with your first purchase
    -There is always something to do without feeling overwhelmed

    Cons

    Honestly not so many cons other than stuff you experience in every work environment: The occasional difficult customers or employees, but you have that at every job.
    -Sometimes people aren't on the same page as far as the RIGHT way to do something but its easy to get that clarified.

    Advice to Management

    None really. All my managers are great. They really work with my schedule as long as I let them know in advance.
