Good place to work

Financial Analyst (Former Employee) Hingham, MA

ProsBy and large, low pressure. most work 9 to 5 days - don't get in the way of the door at the end of the day (assuming you like that kind of job).

ConsPay was average (goes with low pressure). Organization was VERY hierarchical. At the time former COO was no brain surgeon, but understand it is better managed now, despite layoffs to address over expansion. Systems were lacking in a big way.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet right sizing over quickly, concentrate on catelog business, stick to core business (women's clothing) versus additional ventures in kids, and men's clothing - which are not your core.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Extremely disorganized; poor communication; poor calendar scheduling

    P/T Assistant Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    I have been working at Talbots part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: They give employees a great discount on clothes Cons: There is very poor communication from the top on down. Work schedules change constantly, and store mgmt doesn't want to hear you're not available… Advice to Senior Management: Learn to communicate with your employees; stop forcing associates to push… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
