It's the culture that it's downfall. It's like Animal Farm where all the ideas of how to set up the society are great, but the implementation is HORRIBLE. That's what it's like working here. The Regional Leader is horribly biased and plays favorites. The Gallery Leadership in the Bay Area are not the 'right people in the right roles'. And while they say they develop people from within for promotion, it's not true. Unless you're a favored person (so culty, right?) you're not not looked at twice. Corporate is incredibly disjointed from the stores; how can you lead if you don't know what a day in the life is like? And the products themselves? The good are great, but the bad are terrible. Like calling CS many many times on behalf of clients to get replacements kind of bad.
You earn vacation, but it's really tough to schedule. No matching 401k. Medical and dental are ok, but nothing grand. OT is constant because staffing is so bare bones, and the salaried employees are the ones that have to pick up the slack.
In short, don't do it. Don't listen to the flattery and don't get smitten with the beautiful surroundings. Go find real people to work for, ones who truly care.
Merch discounts. Thats about it.
No 401k, tough to take vacations, schedule medical appts, etc
