    I worked at Holt Renfrew full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employees are great. Those that stick around are dedicated to the company and generally positive, despite the few bad eggs. While they recognize that there's a problem with work load and compensation, and say they are trying to fix it, they keep around the bad managers and directors that belittle everyone despite high turnover rates.

    Cons

    Long hours. Pay is not great. No opportunity for advancement. No feedback from manager. Disengaged senior management who don't care what it take to get results. Communication is non existent. Favoritism.
