    Pros

    The money is good and customers love the product so it's usually busy. Benefits are better than some places and they begin for full time after 90 days.

    Cons

    Politics, new systems that are useless, hourly rate never changes more than .25/hr each year which is insane. Management has favorites and it shows. Company has grown cold with growth from original concept

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be a leader rather than going with the office politics so that people have incentive to improve.

    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.

    Pros

    Definitely a brand on the rise, it always felt like Tory Burch herself was very involved in the creating a positive company culture reflective of her ideals.

    Cons

    Sales were pretty competitive but there was enough business to go around. Cutthroat sales tactics were discouraged by management but still existed to some degree. The Tory Burch clientele can also be very...rabid, especially around the holidays. Rude and downright nasty customers were not as uncommon as you would hope for at a high-end establishment.

    I have been working at Tory Burch full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Discount, one on one relationship building with clientele, freedom to make decisions based on what's best for the guest, job security

    Cons

    Work-life balance, people are not a priority, poor pay, zero training, underperforming managers, resistance to feedback, tolerate mediocrity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are great and committed to greatness, separate people who aren't committed to the growth of the company. Management seems to be full of excuses rather than being action oriented. There is an expectation for employees to be open to suggestion but the company is not. Personal relationships seem to trump e abilities of those who are top performers. This is the most miserable job I have ever had

    People are nice, but there is definitely a competitive, almost possesive drive in the air.

    Pros

    Great employee discount and great environment to work in. The office interior design is impeccable.

    Cons

    Seems a little unorganized at times and while it is fast paced, everything seems a little behind schedule.

    Pros

    Employee discount plus extra sales, the opportunity to be creative, my position had a good work-life balance, set schedule, iPad styling app.

    Cons

    Store level was a mess. The manager was biased and hired/promoted people she knew on a personal level. She would come up with excuses to not promote people who worked hard and had been with the company a lot longer. She didn't care about her staff and would constantly lie. Also, the company is pretty unorganized.
