I have been working at GTM Sportswear full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Friendly coworkers
- Offers 100% customer satisfaction
- Continuously trying to grow

Cons

- Inconsistent communication and messages
- Low pay
- They offer 100% customer satisfaction, but they mess up orders so much that it doesn't really matter. If they minimized the mistakes made, they wouldn't have to focus half their time trying to fix what went wrong
- Unbelievable backorder problems
- Poor management
- Market research of sales analysis and forecasts are based of inaccurate and/or irrelevant data

Advice to Management

Train your managers on how to manage, and not just on how to sell. Encourage them to motivate their people the right way. Stand by the values you push on to your employees - I have witnessed way too many accounts of managers trying to give out the cookie-cutter responses, and not take accountability for things they should own up to. EVERYONE knows the concept of "CYA" in this place - this is unfortunate because it leads to management putting up a lot of red tape for their associates, which in turn, holds them back from being able to perform to their full potential just like management is asking them to.

    Pros

    GTM is a great place to develop your skills in the workforce. They provide great opportunities for advancement if one is willing to seek them out. They provide decent benefits and the recent acquisition with HANESbrandsInc has helped to solidify the trust in GTM Sportswear in regards to partnerships and vendors.

    Cons

    The company lacks a sense of direction. Particular members of management do not always understand their roles and responsibilities of looking forward, and this has lead to micromanagement and distractions for multiples areas in the company.

    Advice to Management

    My immediate advice would be to take a stronger interest in following up with the consequences of someone's actions, especially when it is affecting multiple members of the team (and causing GTM to lose exceptional talent.) The amount of favoritism for one employee has caused incredible amounts of harm within the development team and It's difficult to stand by and watch it happen.
