Pros

Excellent group of very dedicated employees in most cases family like attmosphere great discount competitive wages great heritage of company brand name

Cons

alot of political favorings like many companies, play a lot of favorites company in a very unstable time right now, lots of layoffs,shaky from corporate constant changes of schedule, hard to balance with personal life unclear directions coming down from top, very unrealistic for resources given constant change of expectations of jobs

Advice to Management

Have a very good staff for the most part, show more apprecitation of that in a sincere way. Tone of reviews and corrective actions given to people often very harsh and done publicly, while others do the same activities with little said. More advace planning needed to make directions happen in a smooth way, be more realistic in demands given. Offer better incentives to those who do perform.

    Pros

    Discount on clothing a plus, people you work with become family. Customers great, appreciate promos, service provided, loyal Talbots shoppers.

    Cons

    Always more to do with less time, associates and support to ge the job/tasks complete

    Advice to Management

    Tough job for anyone. Hard to see store firings when she has gotten HUGE payout for leaving 2.5 million?


  2. Some much potential, but no leadership, no focus, Heads of business do not know what the customer wants.

    Pros

    Good strong core team at management level and below. Very little leadership at director and above. It is sad to say there is nothing to view as a "Pro" about Talbots other than its heritage.

    Cons

    Poor communication, no focus, no people development plan, no training, no clue who its target customer is or wants

    Advice to Management

    The fish stinks at the head
