    one of the best things about Ted, is the people working there. they hire based on personality and it's a fun environment, can be hard sometimes but that;s just work

    Cons

    depending on store location, shifts can end a bit late and kill your social life, but that's just normal life

    Pros

    Ted Baker makes beautiful clothing collections but that about it.

    Cons

    This was one of the worst retailers that I have ever worked for. It all starts from the top, the West Coast area manager hires most of her friends to work in upper management. Most of the floor managers do not have management experience. Management could care less about there employees growth with the company. Miscommunication is always an issue. If you ever have an issue don't rely on hr to help you their just as disorganized.Their is no structure what so ever. A lot of drama and pettiness among managers.This company has such poor morale I wouldn't recommend anyone to work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be educated on what it really means to run a business.


  6. Fun working environment, typically nice customers, not bad for retail

    Pros

    1 hour lunch break, 75% discount on uniform clothes plus 30% off friends & family discount, often friendly staff and customers

    Cons

    Employee discounts are budgeted with a spending cap, so you cannot purchase all that you want. Uniform must be approved by management and can often be strict. For example, women were are not allowed to purchase jeans as sales advisors at my store. Part-time employees were often not allowed to purchase full suits as items would take up too much of an employee's budget.

    Advice to Management

    Would be great if employees were allowed to have some more perks.

    Pros

    The clothing is amazing and the stores are a great place to network with people in the city. If you can stay long enough the name will look great on your resume. Stores have a very loyal clientele.

    Cons

    There is no structure with management. The way the inner business runs with things like client holds, alterations and shipping client purchases are a mess and cause delays and client issues.
    You have to pay for your clothing allowance and you barley get a lot to begin with. Growth happens rarely. And managers care more about themselves them assisting and helping there associates. The commission structure for the soho store is crap, and all managers in all the stores have to sell and hit an ADH. Which is anoying when there is barly any traffic during the week, and the weekends are overloaded with part timers that are trying to hit there sales goals. Basically there are to many fish swimming in one small fish bowl. Managers do not train you for anything and you are expected to just learn from other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get more organized with all in store operations. Learn product knowledge so you can train your employees. Stop overloading with sale associates on the sales floor it takes away sales from commissioned employees. And if your going to make people pay for the clothing stop being so cheap about 2 pants two shirts and a jacket isn't enough for an employee pushing 40 hours a week.
