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

    Pros

    Coming from a software background, The Black Tux is a unique team because they offer an end to end customer experience. There are so many different skillsets here and many opportunities to learn and grow from colleagues. As an individual contributor, I feel empowered and supported to do my best work. All my teammates are highly capable and committed to doing what's best for the company and our customers with humility...

    Cons

    Hard to think of any cons. It would depend on what you're looking for in a role and if The Black Tux can offer you that. As long as the role is a good mutual fit, this is a great company to work for.

    I have been working at The Black Tux full-time

    Pros

    Where do I even start! The Black Tux is such a fantastic place to work for a bright eyed, enthusiastic, college grads such as myself. Ever since I started 2 months ago, everyone has been extremely welcoming and supportive. The company culture is fun, energetic and collaborative. Diversity is a key theme among employees, and there's definitely a feeling of camaraderie and teamwork in the air. Plus, the CEO and President...

    Cons

    Honestly, it's very hard to think of a con - which is a good sign! But unfortunately, as much as I love working for The Black Tux, it's extremely stressful financially. Living in LA is very expensive - with small bedrooms starting from $1,200/$1300 a month - then factor in other expenses such as car insurance, student loans, gas, food etc. Currently, I'm not making enough money...

    Advice to Management

    As a company, we spend a lot of money on improving the company culture which is amazing! There are always fun things like free food, company outings, meditation, massages, happy hours etc etc. However, I wish that same money could be spent on increasing the wage of hourly employees instead. It's hard to watch so much money being spent on perks when I can't afford to buy groceries at the end of the week :( Otherwise,...

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

    Pros

    I've been working at The Black Tux for under two months and I've already found my place at this amazing company. The culture is fundamentally perfect as it combines acceptance, welcome, and allows you to feel like a member of a greater cause extremely quickly. Along with the typical startup perks (snacks, catered lunches, weekly events, eager individuals, diversity, and more) the managers are more than qualified and experienced...

    Cons

    The Black Tux is still a start up company. It's growing quickly and the customer base is expanding everyday. Due to these changes, it's very difficult to be a perfect company so of course there are small inefficiencies. There is a bit of a cultural divide between the Santa Monica location and the warehouses. It's mainly due to the distance between the locations (logically)...

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be ideal to have the CA locations interact more often (at least once a month).

    I have been working at The Black Tux full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Black Tux over 3 years ago and I can confidently say I have grown quite a bit both personally and professionally. If you are a good team player, enjoy thinking outside the box, innovating and having fun, you will fit in well here.

    Cons

    As a start-up company, sometimes I feel we focus a little too much on growth when we have some things about our infrastructure that could really use a makeover. It is hard to run when your shoes are worn down!

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

    Pros

    The company culture at The Black Tux is great. Everyone is valued equally, from managers to part time associates. Questions and constructive criticisms are always welcome and addressed. Quality of life is very important here, which is the opposite of most soul-crushing retail jobs. I've seen a number of promotions in the last six months, in all areas of the company, so growth is definitely possible.

    Cons

    Occasionally Customer Care miscommunicates info to customers, leading us to have to solve avoidable issues in appointments.

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

    Pros

    I had the privilege to start working with The Black Tux at the end of December 2016. I began in their Operations as a support to their team through the staffing agency. I can say from an outside perspective it was truly a great experience to see the amount of effort and commitment the Operations team presented for growth opportunities at every level. Coming for a previous aerospace environment and the rigidness of the...

    Cons

    The company does a great job of transparency, but I think sharing more information on the background or process of why and how we are doing is really appreciated. It gives employees a great sense of value when they know they are a part of an important milestone.

    Advice to Management

    The Culture Book and the message it shares is powerful. I think the same way most companies have a review of their handbooks we should have a review of the culture book. It's a good way to remind everyone to look at the bigger picture and see why we are part of this great company.

    The Black Tux has been the only company I've worked for that makes me look forward to coming in every morning. I love the support and trust I receive from everyone in the company. It's really empowering to be on the team that cares about your growth!

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

    Pros

    I started at The Black Tux in Feb. 2018. I started out in our Customer Care department. I loved it from the very beginning. The company makes you feel so welcomed and heard. When starting off in Customer Care I was able to actually work with the customers that we serve. I truly felt like I was apart of their special day/event/milestone in life. Helping them problem solve and work through their many stresses. I actual...

    Cons

    I wish I could stay here all day lol. I honestly would work 10-12 hours for this company and not event blink an eye!.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe buy a building for headquarters with an apartment building above it so that I can just take an elevator to work! That would be clutch! Thank you The Black Tux for giving me this opportunity. I look forward to many more years to come.

    I have been working at The Black Tux part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I applied at The Black Tux hoping to get out of the boring, robot-like corporate world and TBT helped me do just that! TBT truly cares about its employees and its culture (free lunches, parties, monthly snacks), which is something none of my other employers have valued before. The owners and managers have a great understanding of what motivates people to work! They also prioritize work/life balance greatly because they...

    I can't think of any cons! I love it at TBT!!

    Advice to Management

    Instagram is extremely popular right now and I believe TBT could do really cool things on Instagram/Instagram stories to help grow the company even further.

    Pros

    I am relatively new here at The Black Tux and so far I absolutely love it! It is quite evident that both the owners, Andrew and Patrick, have a great understanding of what motivates folks to do their best work. They key is believing in your employees and the talent they bring to the table. TBT is a highly collaborative/entrepreneurial environment. You are in control of your success and have the support of upper management...
