    Pros

    Jonathan was extremely kind, knowledgeable and he thoroughly prepared me for my interview. He demonstrated professionalism and genuinely wanted me to be successful in my interview. Days before the interview, he called me periodically to answer any questions or concerns that I might have. Thankfully, I landed the job and have the opportunity to work for a fantastic company! I really enjoy working for TargetCW . This company has a group of individuals that truly care about their job and the people around them. I highly recommend TargetCW to everyone I know and to Jonathan, keep up the awesome job!!

    Cons

    My experience has been very positive! No cons here!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the outstanding job!

    Pros

    I feel like I have been trained and set up to succeed. I just have to do the work. There is always someone around to support my efforts and to answer my questions. I am in the sales department and am amazed at the team comradery. Everyone is happy and the atmosphere is very positive. Sales can at times be discouraging, but because of the people that surround me, it is easy to pick myself up and keep going and moving forward. I have learned so much in my position and am very grateful for my direct bosses, my co workers and even the people in the other departments. Everyone is incredibly supportive.

    The facilities and benefits are so great too. We get to come to a beautiful place with great people. I feel very fortunate.

    Cons

    In my opinion, there are no cons. I am very happy here and if I had any concerns, I feel like I am able to go to my supervisors or even the CEO who has an open door policy.

    I worked at TargetCW full-time

    Pros

    Talented people, good benefits and amenities.

    Cons

    Exempts treated like hourly employees.

    Micro-managed by the CEO, including periodic emails about what's permissible on your desk, including the maximum number of sticky-notes. Style over substance became a common theme.

    Vague whiffs of nepotism, cronyism.

    Managers have restricted empowerment - a senior manager confided to me that he didn't even know if he had firing authority, what his signature authority was, etc.

    CEO's dog ran wild leaving messes behind that just added to the natural ambiance.

    Salary was significantly below industry average.

    CEO and/or senior staff would consistently send out badgering emails directing employees go online and to give the highest possible ratings to TCW on sites such as best-place-to-work-in-san-diego, and this site, in order to generate the best possible view of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do the work you hire them to do.

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing. The longer you work there the more everyone feels like family.

    Cons

    None really, They just hired a VP of Sales for the company internally, which show's there is room to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    This company has helped me find an awesome job. I really wasn't expecting anyone to be as helpful and as motivated to help other people find work. I had the delightful experience working with Jonathan, who is pretty solid with determination and will do attitude and it rubs off easily on others.

    I Truly appreciate everything this company is doing. Faith in humanity restored. I can't thank them enough.

    Cons

    I really do not have any complaints.

    Pros

    Company values those who work hard and will reward you. Do your job, block out the noise, and you cannot fail. They provide tools, training, and an environment to be successful. You have to be a self-motivated person to succeed in this business. CEO values his employees almost to a fault at times. He incorporates great programs to reward people. We are all very spoiled especially for San Diego (notoriously cheap companies and salaries with little extra benefits) that is not here at TCW though.

    The company has values that are highly regarded by me and most rational human beings. Those values are extremely rare in this business too. They have really started to higher much higher level people and have a great executive team being formed which should streamline the companies organization and success.

    TCW will match any donation you make to charity which has allowed hundreds of thousands of dollars to be given to people in need all over the globe.

    They have a passion for veterans. Aaron Arce & Jonathan Schiripo do a great deal with the Veteran community. They work very hard to help veterans get great jobs.

    Cons

    Not really a con since only companies in Bay and tech startups and gaming companies have fully stocked kitchens but if I have to nitpick here it goes- Costco snacks get old. Mix it up a bit get healthier ones and potentially look at providing hot meals internally and a cook would be awesome.
