    Pros

    Good discount, great products that last and look great, good people that treat others with respect. Well trained staff at stores.

    Cons

    Small company with few opportunities for upward mobility. Technology somewhat antiquated. Little stale on fashion side. Need more locations throughout USA.

    Pros

    Company offers employees a great discount on clothes. They really know how to respect the customer with great customer service.

    Cons

    Can be stodgy in the styling. The prices are high and when they expect you to were a current season of clothes, it is hard to afford, even with the discount.

    Pros

    Much more positive direction in terms of design and quality, The return to the old brand logo was a good move and head office seem to be more switched on,

    Cons

    Unrealistic KPI's put forward and poor support from regional managers, The customer demographic needs to be examined, the target audience does not exist everywhere, research and findings needs to be credible. There's some great store managers out there, unfortunately I was stuck in a team where a sales assistant acting more like the manager and HR failed to address this.

    Advice to Management

    Re-examine how HR deal with issues along with regional managers, as someone who made it clear their were issues within store, little was done to nip these in the bud quickly and professionally. Really define what the brand is, wishy washy research isn't going to cut it, understand that many people just don't care about fancy fabric, we need it because it's a part of Jaeger but we also need alternatives for another customer.

    Pros

    The discount and allowance is a bonus.

    Cons

    Awful company to work for, the day to day job is centred around office politics rather than getting the job done. In every area, the company is making a loss, so be prepared to face uncertainty and the threat of redundancy.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that Jaeger can not live on past glories and realise who your target audience is. I would say that Jaeger's clothes are not too dissimilar to Marks and Spencer's Autograph range but at twice the price for poorer quality.

    Pros

    Great benefits, a wonderful working environment. Company fosters a positive working atmosphere, they retain staff and offer a good package.

    Cons

    The staff uniform is a little restrictive, at the moment the company is going through a change of ownership so things feel a little unsure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feedback of store managers
