      Pros

      Great work/life balance/ this is a team built to to honest with a woman! You get the same quality of clothing at high end stores with the same service without commission! These women have busted their butts for YEARS to give you an honest fit!!!

      Cons

      Too many sales changes weekly/ understaffed/ too much of a workload for low pay/ constant Corporate last changes via email daily/terrible buyers/not purchasing clothing for the mindset of buyers without email/non-online shoppers/ yet trying to entice 50+ crowd and millenials at once/ just not knowing their "BRAND." When a company is started 60 years ago it can't just be for that "set." This is a brand that chose to sell out and lost it's focus rather than adjusting with the age and the times. So many women are sad to see this great company that focused on women body types go!!!!!
