    I have been working at Town Shoes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, good incentives, strong HR team.

    Cons

    Leadership from in my area was lacking, no opportunity for growth or career training. worked 50 + hours a week for 3 months, no acknowledgement given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Servant leadership should be forced upon management not suggested. when consistently talked down to and made to feel insignificant an associate has no choice but to move on.

    I have been working at Town Shoes as an intern (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    New management, new outlook, new technology, head office is redesigned and upgraded across the board!!!

    Cons

    They seem to be firing everyone in sight unless they quit first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to (new) management: this company was purchased by your masters because it made a profit every single year it was in business until the year you were hired to run it. Heads are now rolling and it may be your head next. The Simpson family never fired a single employee in 40 years and still managed to turn out profits in the worst economic disaster zones. One slow period and you guys are sucking your thumbs. Try recruiting just a few people with some zip. The success of Town Shoes was built on character and backbone not complacency, toxic environment and venomous back stabbing.
