Pros

The company has always postured itself to take advantage of growth and unique opportunities. The opportunity employees have to showcase their skills and potential is limitless, assuming they understand and take advantage of the role they play. For employees who go above and beyond, they are essentially self-managers who are not micromanaged. Tapestry has done a better job of screening new-hires, despite times when demand to fill positions was high. Overall, it is a great place to work if you know how to effectively contribute without any guidance.

Cons

To truly enjoy the working environment, you must me self-motivated and willing to embrace uncertainty. The only constant is change, and it is commonplace in Tapestry. There was a time when mentorship was abundant for new-hires, but many of the veteran employees have moved on as the culture of the company changed over the years. The biggest frustration is the lack of a recognized career path for younger/mid-level employees. Unless you are a real stand-out employee who makes it clear that upward mobility is your objective, then you will not be asked what path you prefer. Promotion comes by surprise or turnover. As others have posted, there are many managers who come straight from the uniform into a leadership position. This isn't entirely bad, but there ends up being a very rigid, military style of management that comes with it in most cases. There are some amazingly talented people in Tapestry that understand what it takes to properly support the customer and positively change the organization. But, when they leave or become overburdened, I fear a lot of cards will fall.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While contracting always has unpredictability, there must be an internal program of sorts that allows aspiring employees to participate in the 'business of the business'. A resume of education and field work is great, if you only aspire to be an educated field worker... If the next generation of leadership isn't groomed to lead, the positive culture of the organization will vanish very quickly.

    Merging cultures from distinct business units across geographical boundaries has been challenging.
