    I have been working at S&K Famous Brands

    Pros

    Family feel. The culture is built around strong emotional ties. The company receives fabulous loyalty without investing much into its workforce, due to hiring people of great character. The goodness of the team around you binds you to the company.

    Cons

    Declining industry, and poor management decisions. The lack of growth means little opportunity to grow. There is also no formal training program in place for career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more agressive in pursuing opportunities, and be willing to adapt to the changing dynamics. What worked in the 80's will not work today, as the consumer and fashion has changed. Consumers today want uniqueness not cookie cutter clothes.

    Pros

    S&K was a great company to work for. Upper management was always willing to listen to your concerns and opportunity for growth was always present.

    Cons

    At times decisions were made at the store level that store management had no involvement in. Why have a store manager but not allow them to exercise their power?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the company alone. Everything was going well until new "big wigs" were brought in and thought they could change the dynamics. Didn't work very well did it?

    Pros

    Working hard with your co-workers and reaching goals. But the main thing is working with customers, for example, if you like to talk to strangers and meet different people also like sales, then S&K is a great place for you to work. If you ever need a day off or you're too sick to work. They are okay with you not been able to work, unlike one of my previous job where
    if I called out without a doctors not, I would be toast.

    Cons

    The brand or lack of brand and style of clothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My senior management at the branch level was great, However, at corporate, they should listen more to their employees.
    Ever since five or four corporate top dogs left and bought another company and Mr Oliver and other people took over S & K
    the company has closed lots of stores. I believe they need to go back to the old way of S&K and stop trying to be Men's Wearhouse.

    I worked at S&K Famous Brands

    Pros

    Learned a great deal about engaging and inspiring a team of professional sales people. The product selections made by the buyers was good.

    Cons

    There was very little room for professional development and career progression. The company should put more emphasis on developing their leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on professional development, giving clear concise motivational messages to inspire teams, and improve the overall logistics and supply chain.
