    I worked at Savvi Formalwear full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family owned company. They valued opinions given by their management team and took them to heart. Monthly management meetings and yearly line showings gave us the chance to genuinely impact our products and services that were directly offered to our customers. As a manager you were directly responsible for all of the results and operations for your own store. You were given freedom to manage how you wanted without stringent company policies. To me it felt like a free college education.

    Cons

    High volume sales during prom season caused 55 hour work weeks minimum. The pay was less what a store manager in a comparable position would make. Bridal shows on Sundays would require long hours with no break. Work and home life balance was not adequate for the salary received. Highly antiquated computer systems and technology failed to merge brick and mortar with the evolution of the .com market of the wedding industry. Computer systems would crash on a regular basis. The only person well versed in IT was one of the plant managers and he was oftentimes understandably frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your website and hire a full time IT crew. Pay your management team more for the stress they incur.
