      Friendly team with no vision or plan

      Pros

      Fun, tight-knit group. Good work-life balance for some teams. If you wear men's clothes, free tuxedo rental is a pretty good perk. Company is now fully remote-friendly (and has hired some smart remote people as a result).

      Cons

      Directionless, chaotic tech organization. The company hasn't had an experienced product leader with influence over roadmaps for at least several years now. PMs are simply tending backlogs; the design team is hollowed out and overloaded; and engineers are drowning in technical debt. Business decisions made during the pandemic decimated customer word-of-mouth goodwill, and no changes to the website can outperform livid customers and perennially self-inflicted logistics problems. Newly remote employees mostly left to navigate their new situation on their own. No professional development or budget for same.

      Grateful to work here

      Pros

      TBT cares about their employees success and well being. We are encouraged to explore outside courses, certifications, etc to further our professional development. They also care about us as people and have employee engagement check-ins, schedule wellness days off and coordinate meditation and yoga classes. I also truly enjoy working and spending time with my coworkers. TBT goes through a pretty vigorous interview process to ensure the person is not only qualified to do the work but also will be a good culture fit and represents our company values. We also have a Diversity & Inclusion team that is organized and run by TBT employees. They sent out monthly news letters and offer seminars on topics that include Black History Month, National Women's Day, LGBTQ awareness and mental health awareness.

      Cons

      Sometimes I feel like we have our foot in one too many initiatives. I would like to simplify our brand and perfect what we are doing, as opposed to taking on so many different avenues of acquiring customers.

      Best & Worst Place to Work

      Pros

      Honestly, it was the Friday lunches that they would provide every week. Also the people I worked with were all amazing. Occasional company outings. 6 month reviews that normally incouded a raise.

      Cons

      The lack of communication between associates and management. Management constantly lied or went back on their word. Under paid employees for their respective roles.
