    I worked at lululemon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture and benefits like generous discount and personal development opportunities.

    Cons

    Pressure to be "all in" and spend free time doing work related things, such as getting to know co workers and attending unpaid workout classes.

    Advice to Management

    Instill a more set schedule for management to help achieve a better life work balance. Regular check ins to unsure employee satisfaction rather than current "ask for what you need" attitude

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

    Pros

    2 free classes a week
    401k
    Decent bonus structure
    Most of the time - a great community
    fun to go to work

    Cons

    "Clicky"
    Only expect to move up in the company if you are friends with a manger.
    lululemon has their own "language" and if you don't speak it, you're looked at as less "intelligent".
    They try to mold you into their idea of "greatness".
    If you are terminated, they send out an email to all of their ambassadors letting them know that you are "no longer with the company, and that they think you for all your contributions". However, they don't send this email to you, so they aren't really "thanking" you.
    You're surrounded by people who think that selling stretchy pants is the most important thing on the planet.

    Advice to Management

    Hire authentic people. lululemon is becoming more and more generic.

    Take care of your people.
