    I worked at TechStyle full-time

    Pros

    This company is great at getting better. Now is a great time to get on board if you’re ready for the ride ! It’s a rewarding challenge, but there are turbulence (as there are in many companies) so buckle in ! There’s a lot of great employees with great heart and work ethic, don’t let the haters get you down! This place is exactly what you make of it!

    Cons

    As I said, there’s been some growing pains but the upside is that the resurgence is going very, very strong with great new additions companywide.

    Advice to Management

    Good job on recognizing faults and correcting them

    Pros

    when we come up with any, we'll let you know

    Cons

    Where to begin. This is a culture that suborns and supports negativity and toxic behavior, in almost every department. Do not count on petitioning HR for resolutions to abusive behavior, nothing will be done.

    It's understood that if you are very desperate for a job, then you need to work. But if you have other options besides this company, exercise them. Do not be taken in by fake reviews or positive-sounding HR responses on this site, it's a ruse. Know exactly what you are getting into with employment here, and it's not good in any way.

    Advice to Management

    fire yourself immediately

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

    Pros

    I can't really think of any worth mentioning.

    Cons

    - bad management
    - doesn't value or respect creative
    - micromanaged by CEOs
    - false promises
    - unlivable hours (once worked until 5am)
    - no thank yous or appreciation
    - "boys club"

    I was also verbally assaulted by a "VP" and everyone turned the head. Nice management...

    Advice to Management

    You push that book "5 Disfunction's of a Team", yet all of your behaviors and decisions are dysfunctional, abusive and mean. Maybe don't treat your employees like slaves. Maybe check in with them.

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

    Pros

    The first thought I had when I interviewed with the company was that the energy throughout the office was infectious and everyone seems to be very passionate about what they do. I remember thinking that I was 'down for the cause' and that I really wanted to work there, no matter what the job entailed. 3 years later, I still feel strongly about this, and my initial perception of the company has not changed.

    - It's evident that the Co-CEOs and executives really care about employees - also, the executive team is comprised of a fairly even ratio of male to female leadership (and the women in the leadership positions are a force to be reckoned with in a great way!)
    - The transparency overall and at Town Halls are appreciated (highlights and lowlights, so we know what we have worked hard to achieve and where we could improve)
    - Perks and employee engagement programs are very thoughtful and really aim to improve employee experience
    - Everyone I have interacted with has been very nice, very supportive

    Cons

    - 401K match could be improved
    - Putting this here because it *used* to be more of an issue, but I wanted to call out that it has improved: work-life balance used to be a sticking point, but I have found that this has significantly improved for me

    Pros

    Cafeteria food is good, but you will rack up quite a bill pretty fast eating there everyday.

    Office is nice, no cubicles.

    They’ve added an on boarding week

    Healthcare and PTO

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management and workers.

    Lack of “team” mentality. Everyone is overwhelmed to the point where they can only focus on their immediate task at hand. When things go wrong everyone rushes to cover their own neck.

    Lack of communication within teams, between teams, and between departments. The systems here are overly complicated, and if you’re not involved in meetings you will quickly get lost.

    You’re expected to work late.

    High turnover due to all of the above.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate your org health. This Dept. has been almost completely replaced twice now.

    Pros

    The management offers very flexible hours so that you can create a schedule that works for you. It is a very positive work environment that makes me want to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are too many employees so it can make it hard to get scheduled as much as you would like. The constant renaming of the clothes can make it difficult to get used to a specific style.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing. I think that there are a lot of positives and there are a few things to work on, but overall this is a very good place to work and I have enjoyed my experience.
