    Turnover extremely high. Unfair Management practices.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsFlexible schedule.
    Management offers some training and development.

    ConsUpper management bases decisions on who they like not on skill level.
    During my tenure, there has been 7 layoffs resulting in at least 15+ people being laid off.
    Employee morale struggles and continues to decline.
    CEO received a bonus during time that bonuses were not given to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and be willing to look at yourself to make best decision for company. It does not make sense to fire staff when the problem starts from the top of the ladder.

    Decent place to work, and was a good stepping stone early in my career.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsNew Office in Dallas
    Very nice desks and personal cubicle space
    Nice Cafe area to sit and eat lunch
    Small but functional fitness room
    Very trendy and upbeat atmosphere
    Monthly "Fun Bunch" sponsored events
    401k

    ConsToo many chiefs, and not enough Indians.
    Employees were not complimented enough on all the great work they did.
    Some managers seemed to focus on the negative, instead of promoting the positive.
    High employee turnaround.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDiscourage micromanaging your employees and let them actually do some work.
    Compliment the work they complete.
    Cut 20% of the middle management.
    Cut 10% of the upper management.
    Hire 15% more "top talent" employees to do the work of the 30% decent talent management.
    Have team meetings

    An OK company for a political player! Be ready to work long hours with a great deal of repetitive work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsLots of opportunity.
    Hardworking employees especially among the lower ranks.

    ConsUpper management lacks specific industry experience. Work loads are not evenly distributed. Cliques with politics playing too big a role.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at employees for their knowledge and true value that they can contribute.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Beware of Failure

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe best reason for working at Tandy would be to jump start your resume with know brands in the market.

    ConsTandy is very top heavy and lower level employees are always first to go. 2) Very catty work environment and favorites are always played. 3) You will be pitted co-worker against co-worker and it creates a very stressful work environment. 4. No one at the top knows anything about design or fashion. 4. No one has an enducation for experience in working with fashion. 5) You are rarely told what you are doing wrong or need to improv, only gossiped about and suffer later.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would say that they need to stop listening to so much gossip and try to meet with people to solve issues. Also, they need to understand their own shortcomings and not be so defensive. And finally, not to pit people against one another who are supposed to be on the same "team." And, give credit where credit is due for each employee. No one was treated as if they had done a good job. And finally, they should be more honest and look at sales reps for loss of business and not design. Many in design are let go bc of poor sales reps and not many are fired bc they are apart of an Elite grp of "friends."

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
