    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you work hard and average smarts you will do a good job, and if you do a good job you will feel appreciated. The Mens Wearhouse (TMW) does a lot to show they care. Like when they were cutting budgets a while back they made any upper people in the company say $100,000 earners and more get pay cuts and also those people had to increase the cost they spent for health care.

    Compensation at my level is good but the benefits are better than I have ever heard of.

    All the average employees were left alone. TMW also still does company pick nicks yearly holiday parties and even allow every store a small budget every month for meals so the store manager can basically buy one meal a month for the whole store.

    Cons

    There is very little turn over and there stores are already everywhere, this is normally a pro but it makes it almost impossible to get advancement into management even if your a top employee. They try to make a friendly environment but it feels kind of like when there's no customers around everyone is in a big college party. - The biggest con was the minimal advancement chances.

    Advice to Management

    I am not sure what to say Its a good company and good environment, just so many people like working here its hard to get advancements.

    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Have ok benefit packages, Compensation is somewhat comparable to other retail locations.

    Cons

    Even though the benefit packages are decent, changed from Blue Cross Blue Shield to Cigna. Now my doctor isn't covered. Little perks like company picnics and others are being taken away. Basically for the pay I was getting which was ok, the perks had made up for. Now that George is gone they're becoming even more Corporate oriented and less about keeping the employees happy. Which I believe is important to any work culture. This job is fun at times, but you deal with the stress of people especially brides and grooms on a daily basis. Those perks helped make up for it! Some Regional Managers don't care about their stores and only come around when it's convenient for them. They don't take care of things in a timely manner, making it hard to complete your tasks. Usually having to go around them to get things accomplished. Overall ok company to work for. Everyone is now easily expendable that George is gone!

    Advice to Management

    Check on your regional managers from time to time. Make sure they're visiting all their stores to help them grow, not when its convenient to them, like retail inventory!

    I worked at Men's Wearhouse full-time

    Pros

    Laid back environment, promote from within, yearly company trips

    Cons

    little room for moving up, males that were chummy with the district managers were the only ones I ever saw promoted, a lot of inter company gossip and scandal, there's a lack of maturity, their idea of playing hard is inappropriate for a work environment

    Advice to Management

    If you want he best talent, you have to be willing to pay them. Stop trying to be cool and recognize the real needs of the company.

    I have been working at Men's Wearhouse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Generous vacation time
    - Overall good upper management
    - 3 weeks paid off with 5 years of service
    - Fun company events (baseball games, holiday parties)
    - Fun competitions to have a chance to win money
    - Fun and productive management meetings
    - Innovative
    - Getting more into the casual clothing market

    Cons

    The difference in pay between Men's Wearhouse and Men's Wearhouse & Tux divisions is big. For those who don't know Men's Wearhouse & Tux are smaller stores that used to be After Hours formal wear. As a store manager I make equal or less then most Wardrobe Consultants at a Mens Wearhouse and I have a lot more responsibilities than they do. The training gap is big as while. It seems like the employees at Men's Wearhouse division have formal training all the time. I feel that they sometimes forget about the smaller stores. Also promotions and changes are kept in the dark and seems very secretive.

    Advice to Management

    - Start closing Men's Wearhouse & Tux stores and start to consolidate stores
    - More formal training sessions for everyone
    - Pay Operations Managers more!! (They deal with a LOT of customer service issues)
    - Overall, on the right track
