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

    Pros

    Strong culture, autonomous working environment in my department. Good salary and benefits. Had the opportunity to do want I loved to do with people that I liked every day.

    Cons

    Very poltical home office environment. Became all about the dollar. Feel that CEO was very disconnected from the field. Making decisions without transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very important to be honest with your teams.
