    I have been working at S&K Famous Brands

    Pros

    Family feel. The culture is built around strong emotional ties. The company receives fabulous loyalty without investing much into its workforce, due to hiring people of great character. The goodness of the team around you binds you to the company.

    Cons

    Declining industry, and poor management decisions. The lack of growth means little opportunity to grow. There is also no formal training program in place for career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more agressive in pursuing opportunities, and be willing to adapt to the changing dynamics. What worked in the 80's will not work today, as the consumer and fashion has changed. Consumers today want uniqueness not cookie cutter clothes.
