    I have been working at JoS. A. Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Offers challenges and workplace variety. Great customers and do not feel micromanaged.

    Cons

    Long hours, just ok pay. No raise in years. Difficult and non-working IT programs that make it challenging to accomplish goals in a timely manner. Minimal promotion opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mean what you say and stand behind it. Policies are in place to protect all employees. Fair and consistent practices should be carried across all channels. Expectations should be the same for everyone. Improved IT and software programs that work will make everyone's performance improve. Clear and honest communication is the best way to earn employee trust.

    A challenging yet rewarding experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank

    Pros

    Leadership was focused on the business and what needed to be done to achieve goals. There was no question as to what the direction of the company was or what was expected in order to get there.

    Cons

    Long hours and long commute. The HQ unit is a long way out in the country for many people, and it was difficult at times to meet the demanding hours while still managing the commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sell out to Men's Wearhouse . . . oh, sorry, too late.

    I worked at JoS. A. Bank

    Pros

    Friendly staff and supervisory staff. Clearly defined S.O.P.'s, and really useful learning experience for those interested in how they look. Best Retail work/life balance in the industry.

    Cons

    the only "Cons" I can think of are the Holiday hours and "Black Friday", but that's retail so - - - .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the only advice I would give to upper management, is you might want to up the staffing hours for Assistant Managers and Department Managers, so that the Store Managers can better balance there time off.
