    I have been working at G-III Apparel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Good benefits- choose from 2 healthcare options, vacations (10 days), sick days (6 days), floating holiday (1). Early closing before a holiday (2:00pm). All major holiday (non religious).
    - Very good people
    - Casual at most times. You can talk to the VP of your division like a regular co-worker, no one is pretentious.
    -They do prefer to promote within
    -Early salary increments (very minimum, but it's something!)

    Cons

    -Sometimes there's no direction
    -in my division, they're scared of firing people, which means there's a lot of people there that shouldn't be there who are just screwing up or not really contributing the same as other
    -No real way to grow, in terms of position. A lot of people have been there for a long time, so unless someone quits or gets fired, you won't be moving on up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Get rid of anyone that is not really bringing anything to the table and open space for others to shine
    -Make sure everyone understands how the division works as a whole and not only what there department does, it will make everything flow better

    Antiquated systems but feels like smaller family based company

    I have been working at G-III Apparel

    Pros

    The company has grown quite a bit over the past few years which makes you think there should be a lot of job opportunities. There is great potential.

    Cons

    Systems and process are not aligned between divisions and the only updated system is outlook emails. Design hands off sketches only to the factories without any spec or fabric/trim details. Areas and management are stingy with sharing information and best practices which would make the company a lot better overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use human resources to better source people for job opportunities rather than hiring within each division/department and not advising human resources when there are open positions.

    Pros

    Schedule is Monday through Friday. Nothing positive to say about this place.

    Cons

    Company does not value their employee's. No opportunity to grow. It squeeze's the life out of you.

    I have been working at G-III Apparel full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits that are in line with other similar companies, and a generous holiday schedule that includes days like Christmas Eve and the day after Thanksgiving.

    Cons

    Lack of personal growth due to being micromanaged, makes it difficult to focus on actually doing your job. There is no sense of team unity, rather more of a competitive atmosphere where you're constantly watching your back. Management is threatened by strong employees so will constantly look for ways to keep you down and make you feel inferior.

    Pros

    Friendly and supportive co-workers. Job stability.

    Cons

    No annual review. Company doesn't like to have job titles therefore they pay less than the average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your employees on an action plan for growth. Have annual reviews and keep it at the same time each year.

    Pros

    Great relationship with coworkers. Learned a lot about all aspects of garment manufacturing.

    Cons

    Not fairly compensated. Under staffed in a lot of areas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take note in the people who true work hard for the company interest free because they truly love what they do. And reward them accordingly. A lot of employees feel
    Neglected.

    I have been working at G-III Apparel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, good hours for the fashion industry.

    Cons

    Not very clear management structure. Run very "family business" style, even though the company has grown quite large

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More standard performance review practices, allow employees to explore and work towards advancement.

    I have been working at G-III Apparel full-time

    Pros

    The company is flexible, giving key employees who are ambitious the freedom and scope to go out and get things done, with very little red tape. G-III operates like a small business, although there are public group with over $1 billion in annual sales.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and policy often leads to confusion about who is responsible when things do not go as well as planned.
