    I have been working at Ted Baker London part-time

    Pros

    Company culture, pay, sometimes promote from within.

    Cons

    Not a fan of the clothes which is an issue because even with the discount you're usually paying $50-140 for a work dress. Bonuses are extremely rare because the goals for the stores are intentionally set SUPER high.

    Pros

    Commission (only when selling stuff online and goal is made) Pretty nice customers

    Stop being so petty when associates leave the company . Make the goals way more achievable .

    I have been working at Ted Baker London full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The clothing is colorful and fun Pay is decent

    Cons

    Procedures is tedious at best, its a waste of P&L Back room store managers with lack of selling culture No H&R presence Unorganized structure A free for all company Random conference calls during peak hours/schedule rotation Computer system is outdated (verifone) Lack of company customer service With discount still paying $50+ for a pair shirt unless you want a t-shirt.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your stores! If they're not making sales spend more time in those locations and watch. When visiting, have your SMs on the sales floor, see if they're driving sales.
