If you like big companies that are over processed this is your place

Marketing Manager (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

ProsLots of smart, talented people within the organization.

ConsLots of swirl - takes weeks to get something finalized and approved but it will most likely be changed the day after it gets published. People bounce from brand to brand within corporate thinking that what worked in one brand will work in another even though they are the same demo. LOTS of politics. People also aren't friendly. The first two weeks of work no one introduced themselves to me in meetings or elsewhere even though they new I was brand new.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Williams-Sonoma part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros: Great people--some of the best in this type of retail… Cons: Aggressively clueless upper management. Pressure to perform as a top tier comissioned sales person… Advice to Senior Management: Refocus on core business concepts like service and employee satisfaction.
