    I have been working at The Children's Place full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great discount, wear jeans to work everyday, great prices, upbeat music to work to

    Cons

    Minimal pay with maximum expectations, hours are always being cut, wasted money on marketing all the time, very little opportunity for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending a ton of money on unnecessary marketing. Value your employees. Store managers get crazy vacation and PTO but part-timers get low pay.

    Highly political, hierarchy, more important to fit into corrupt culture than to be good at what you do.

    I worked at The Children's Place full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    PTO and employee morale was good.

    Cons

    The work was mundane and routine. Senior management and others need to learn basic interpersonal skills and get out of their own heads and work silos. Some employees with influence due to longevity with the company are not open to change or newness and hold onto their projects too tightly, not allowing you to have influence. It's either done their way or it's considered wrong. My VP wasn't a good leader. The person used their arrogance as a weapon, acted cowardly on many occasions and unprofessional, speaking about past employee confidential matters. The person also played favorites versus recognizing true talent and holding onto it. Environment is extremely gossipy and unprofessional. A complete waste of my time, talent, creativity and energy. Onto bigger and better things!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose your egos and focus on the business of The Children's Place.
