    Pros

    Great sample sales for employees only where you get discounts
    Beautiful office

    Cons

    *Everyone sits on top of each other in computers lined up
    * pay little very cheap in salary. I got a 100 dollar increase at my yearly increase
    * human resource department very unprofessional. Don't value hard working employees over high management who does the bare min simply bc of title only my boss was verbally abusive and when speaking to hr about it giving written down evidence they turned their cheek

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. I saw many hard working valuable employees come and go while the higher level lazy employees stayed because your leadership didn't want to listen to the reality of the situations happening in the office in regards to mismanagement. There is a very high turn over rate as a result of this.

    Pros

    This company truly cares about their employees. From Summer Friday's to Employee Appreciation week and annual culture surveys, they put effort into making Tory Burch a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Some people in higher management can be moody and flat out rude. We are expected to embody the Buddy values such as kindness and warmth but this is not always demonstrated by those in power positions. It is also easier in certain departments than others to get raises. The salaries are competitive but you can make a lot more in the same industry by working at a less desirable or cool company.

    Pros

    The organization is committed to employees. Very friendly environment. It is a pleasure to work with the employees of the organization.

    Cons

    You can find yourself working around the clock. The environment is too liberal and many employees abuse the situation and are online browsing their social networks constantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little less liberal with how employees spend their time on the floor. There is too much complain of everyone being busy yet, there is a lot of time wasted.

    Great product - things to improve upon to become Best in Class

    Pros

    Everybody works very hard at Tory Burch and seems very invested in the success of the organization. It feels personal because Tory Burch herself is around and making design decisions. The intention behind the company culture is very positive. The product is beautiful and the company cares greatly about the esthetics of our output - in all areas whether it be a handbag or a powerpoint presentation. There is incredible growth of the organization which means incredible opportunity to learn with a dynamic company. The company has also infused new leaders over the last year that seem to have incredible capabilities and long-term visions.

    Cons

    Since TB is still a small organization with a focus on creative, there isn't a lot of process in place where process is needed. The company has grown so quickly that employees aren't clear about responsibilities and accountabilities. The company culture is touted to be "friendly and warm" but I find people to be fairly aloof and cold. There isn't a large sense of community or family beyond your immediate team. While the company has recently introduced a very good leadership development program, day-to-day career development and growth hasn't been formalized so people don't understand which skills and abilities are needed to get them to the next level. Certain key leaders are not visible AT ALL to employees while others are extremely engaged in everyday business and employees at all levels. Managers need to be better about addressing poor performance and holding everyone accountable for their actions. The office resources are abysmal - employees are stuffed in every corner imaginable and conference rooms are rarely available. The office resources are an actual impediment to the way people work and can be one of the most frustrating aspects of working in the corporate environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your offices and interact with employees at all levels! Forget the feng shui and buy some office space that is large enough for ALL employees that actually helps instead of hinders our work. Continue to invest in systems and infrastructure that not only supports the size of the organization today but also tomorrow. Force collaboration cross-functionally. Promote from within where possible. Clearly set expectations and firmly hold ALL employees to those expectations - stop making allowances for the "special ones".
