As long as you continue to micro manage great workers you will lose them.

    I worked at Tommy Bahama full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved meeting all the customers that arrived from far away, the company gravitates around all the cultures that meet. Tommys' always encouraged employees to converse and create relationships with customers. There was a monthly touch base on sales, performance and any other concerns. At the moment, I worked with a great team and communication didn't fail. Any questions or concerns were always properly and professionally addressed by my floor supervisor. I definitely see room to grow.

    Cons

    The hours definitely killed me. Sadly enough, commission is not individually offered. There was definitely tension between management which always made the rest of the employees uncomfortable. Overall, non-management to management employee relationships were great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the "Relax, life is one long weekend" culture of the company while growing. Let's continue to be ourselves and not try to be like anybody else. That's why people like us and what makes Tommy Bahama special.
