    Pros

    Free shoes, great flash sales fun outside of work activities (depending on which brand you work for) Great place to climb the ladder if you have the drive Becoming more open minded with working from home Daycare on site GTM on site

    Cons

    certain brands get special treatment like updated work spaces. Everyone in the original building are left with what’s availability but there is no urgency to align our brands with the same working environment. Communication is awful and in some cases non existent. There is a lot of potential for these teams to do great together but the higher ups don’t see the critical needs for team bonding and encouraging others to communicate more and more importantly LISTEN to others who might be having issues. We’re not a team if everyone’s on a different page. Nearly impossible to get a raise . It all depends on your higher ups. If they don’t like you, you don’t get a raise, fair and square.

    Pros

    Free shoes if you are lucky

    Cons

    Toxic - can't trust anyone. Leadership keeps secrets from the CEO and all areas operate in a silo. Major turnover of Presidents and Sr. Leaders. Layoffs - they have layoffs almost every year and I am not talking about because of COVID. Do your research. In 2019 alone they must have had 10 rounds of layoffs. They do them small enough as to not get attention to the public or wall street. If the leadership doesn't like you, watch out. They grab you before you get to your desk, make you sign a paper, then you are gone. No trust in the CEO - it's weird, all the Sr. Leaders hide the truth and rearrange the facts. They act like they like him but behind his back, can't wait till he leaves. Research - Look at the other reviews and do your research. Better yet, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Relatively easy work. Nice discount. Richmond office does it’s one of the better paying jobs.

    Cons

    Mind numbing, especially during the holidays. Lack of communication between teams. Overall frustration and no back up with unruly consumers. The other offices get decked out with things and we get the bare minimum
