    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hingham, MA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hingham, MA

    I have been working at Talbots full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you live near Hingham it is an easy commute. Otherwise, there are few direct routes to the headquarters

    Cons

    Job insecurity. Very little loyalty to associates. The compnay was bought by a private equity firm which may be looking at it an opportunity to make the balance sheet look good so they can turn around and sell the company for a profit. Anything is possible but long term outlook is very cloudy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some loyalty. Be honest with associates (as if that will ever happen).

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
