    I have been working at Talbots full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you live near Hingham it is an easy commute. Otherwise, there are few direct routes to the headquarters

    Cons

    Job insecurity. Very little loyalty to associates. The compnay was bought by a private equity firm which may be looking at it an opportunity to make the balance sheet look good so they can turn around and sell the company for a profit. Anything is possible but long term outlook is very cloudy.

    Advice to Management

    Show some loyalty. Be honest with associates (as if that will ever happen).

    I worked at Talbots full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is big on promoting from within.
    Part time and full time benefits options.
    (My) Management worked well with identifying talent in each associate and utilizing it well.
    Competetive pay.
    Classic Quality product.
    Brand has grown from strictly classic pieces, to more modern items and colors- broadens the demographic of shoppers to work with.
    Company always aims to improve their practices
    My Manager was very generous with working out scheduling conflicts so we could all have work/life balance.

    Cons

    Rumors constantly circulating about company's health.
    Known for their quality but at times the quality was questionable.
    Too often in "sale" mode, so much so that customers expect it and it deters them from buying full price merch.
