Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Talbots full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

excellent pay for my level
great co-workers

Cons

company wants to appeal to every age so styles become old & predictable season after season
every time I have scheduled days/vacation off my DM would come up with some reason to cancel it-I was always giving up my time only for it to go unappreciated!
DM wants only her ideas-doesn't listen to anyone who doesn't agree with her.
producing results is not rewarded-individual thinking is stifled
payroll should be based on results not given to the highly visible stores first

Advice to Management

listen to your associates in the trenches more and don't rely solely on the DMs word
