    Pros

    Established brand, being a part of Tory and her success, employee discount

    High turn over: can't keep leadership teams staffed, burnt out leadership team in result
    Micromanaging: belittled

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    It's like a billion dollar mom and pop company. We're still figuring a lot of stuff out, but some of the best people you'll ever work with. No rigid hierarchy. C-Suiters are just as approachable as associates. Once you get 'in' with everyone the corporate team is like a big group of friends all trying to take the company and the brand to the next level.

    Cons

    The growing pains you have to deal with in helping the company grow and figure out how to solve the issues inherent working for a billion dollar company that is slightly over a decade old.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building out the infrastructure and the brand. The rest will take care of itself.

    I worked at Tory Burch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary
    Good discounts and benefits for the employees
    Exposure to the work of a full fashion house if you are in the NY headquarter

    Cons

    Cramped office, all windows taken to build private offices for Executives.
    Some Leaders are not qualified and run the teams with frustration and fear, good employees move to other jobs

    Advice to Management

    Some old school VPs are not really qualified to lead growing Teams
    High turn-over, lot of qualified employees leave before the 2nd year
    HR focused solely on Talent Acquisition, zero initiaties for Talents Retention, performances reviews are a joke, you're left at the mercy of your direct Manager.

    I have been working at Tory Burch part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing that keeps me here is the 3% commission of every sale, and every month or two we get 60% off employee discount including outlets. Plus you get a uniform and change at work so its nice. Tory Burch's stuff is great and most of it is good quality.

    Cons

    Managers are very snobby
    Dont value the autonomy of their employees
    Pressure them to be aggressive and forced to sell only to get their bonus
    The managers will write you up even if youre one minute late, it's insane.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressive selling is not the only way to sell!!!!
    Try to actually care enough about your employees and understand their skill sets and give genuine advice based off observing performance.
    Respect your employees and don't take away their sales.

    Pros

    Store moral is low because manager is awful. Upper management turns a blind eye as #'s r met=$'s.

    Cons

    Pressure to make inflated #'s so manager makes bonus. Manager talks about u behind your back, everyone is paranoid. Schedule is always late or changes day b4- is that legal?

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to listen to your employees, you are a sneaky cold fish. She makes people not trust one another.
