I worked at Crate & Barrel full-time for less than a year

Pros

All the employees are extremely nice and make you feel part of their team. The program is well organized and well rounded. I really learned a lot and enjoyed my experience.

Cons

Their interview process takes place a little later, so I had to wait till almost the summer to decide where I wanted to intern.

    I have been working at Crate & Barrel part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people here really like each other and it feels like one big family. There is quite a bit of longevity which speaks to the employees dedication to the company and to one another.

    Cons

    There have been too many extreme changes in such a short time that it is unsettling. Changes should have been more thoughtful and gradual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sharing comments don't equal a bad attitude.

    I worked at Crate & Barrel full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Friendly environment, great employee discount and flexible with schedule.

    Cons

    Overall management cannot or will not acknowledge hard work or accomplishments unless its time for annual employee review. Favoritism is key to moving up in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair with your employees. Give opportunities to those who are not in the "Inner Circle". Recognize talent and leadership without being influenced by hearsay.
