    Pros

    The Black Tux truly cares about their employees and creating a culture that allows transparent communication. Every employee is treated with respect, and there are key programs in place to ensure everyone feels valued in their role.

    Cons

    I currently do not have anything to add to this.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at The Black Tux

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, Snacks, Water, Fun events, some managers are invested in your growth.

    Cons

    During my time there I watched aggressive cuts happen to the operations and customer support team, while other teams had minimal. During wedding season, without fail, there were always inventory issues due to damaged or lost product which led CS and individual contributors in Operations to be continuously bottlenecked. Additionally, there were issues with communication between departments. For example, when product was sold out and completely unavailable, marketing would still post those items to social media for advertising which would increase inbound calls as customers struggled to purchase the product they had just seen. - No job security - Siloed teams - work culture is not transparent

    I have been working at The Black Tux full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not overstating things––this is the best place I've ever worked. My work priorities are autonomy/respect, responsibilities I'm excited by and can learn from, great people, flexibility, strong salary, and a fun culture. TBT is all of those things and more.

    Cons

    Startup-y in that initiatives we've invested in can suddenly go away or get dramatically scaled down, and communication isn't always the best across teams.

    Former Employee - Administrative in Santa Monica, CA

    I worked at The Black Tux full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great culture and people with lots of fun activities and caterings Annual salary adjustment Dog friendly Free health care Cell phone and parking reimbursement You can work remotely once in a while (if you work in the HQ) Unlimited PTO No micromanagement

    Cons

    Different departments are not on the same different page. Processes can be deviated from standard policies which causes difficulties to accomplish a common goal among goal. People are hired with no prior related work experiences which causes challenges to work others Will cut corners to save cost

    Pros

    Good People, Good Work-Life Balance, Has the potential to be a much bigger company if they want to become that

    Cons

    Lack of communication and a solid growth plan leads to poor execution leaving employees stressed. The cultural differences between the headquarters and the rest of the company leaves something to be desired.
