    Pros

    Pros were meeting very interesting people, corporate offices located upstairs, press events, top sales in the nation, high foot traffic, exclusive lines, beautiful store, top-performing team, sales incentives and bonuses. Bonuses were often hit because of the high foot traffic and location.

    Cons

    Architecture separates team. Stressful work environment because of foot traffic, LP issues, etc. Store is opened longer than other locations in city. Incredibly difficult to get requested days off verified and accepted.

    Advice to Management

    LP problems should not be directly blamed on sales associates. Schedule more associates throughout the day. Respect employee's need for certain days off.

    Pros

    Ted does have a great company culture, although in the US it can be a bit overwhelming. Managers are always willing to help and they want to see you grow, but only within Ted Baker. If you do not have a great team around you, it can be difficult because Ted is all about the team.

    Cons

    The team based learning can either work in your favor or make your experience miserable. It is hard to balance selling while completing the company workbooks that must be completed. The product can be difficult to sell in the U.S. market.
