I worked at a Ted Baker leased mat within a Bloomingdale's for approx several months. Although I've heard that the experience is more impactful working at a Ted Baker standalone store, I had a overall good experience working at Ted within Bloomingdale's.
I was treated fairly and with respect by management at Ted. It can be tricky to navigate the rules and standards of both Ted and Bloomingdale's at the same.
I did see opportunity for growth within the company, but could not devote the amount of time needed to do so.
I was concerned about job security within Bloomingdale's as business appears to be bad.
I would have probably preferred working in standalone store, and would recommend doing so over a leased space.
