Pros

Great Sales driving business. Locations all over. Great sales staff. Great clothing at a reasonable price. Set your own salary.

Customers confused by value in sales. Management claims to care about their employees, but?. Not enough feedback from employees on issues related to the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop giving the store away to do business

    Pros

    At Jos. A. Bank you are really empowered to run your own business and have a lot of control within your four walls.

    Cons

    Aggressive marketing techniques are not profit friendly and I believe that to some people it makes th product less desirable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems that the company is ever evolving to meet the needs of a bad economic climate. There's a fine line between confirming to industry needs and "grabbing at straws"
