    I worked at bebe stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, great employee discount, very good management training, competitive pay for management

    Cons

    Inconsistency in upper management expectations, a lot of upper management is spread thin with recent cuts in upper management so not a lot of support, brand is having problems identifying themselves in the fashion marketplace as sales are down and stores are randomly closing. Not a lot of job security

    Advice to Management

    Be very self sufficient and always have an exit strategy. They offered no severance to management that lost their positions.

    It's been a year of transition but confident we have reached an inflection point.
