    I am not acknowledge or compensated for all my traveling or for my elevated role in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and up front with your employees ands managers about the role they will play and are expected to play in the company.

    Hours, weekend nights at clean up time, employees and customers can be rude. No room to move up if the higher ups are great an love their jobs.

    Pros

    Has good benefits and thats about it.

    Cons

    To many chiefs not enough indians. Stressful job. Too many opinions, and never on the same page. Higher ups do not want to step out of the box. Higher ups do not pay attention to who the customer is. Higher ups do not pay attention to details or think things threw. Higher ups dividing out work never are on schedule. Things are done last minute all the time. Things get out late and make it stressful. Higher ups waste a ton of money. Will never receive raise. All non higher ups are miserable and hate their job. Higher ups steel ideas and take to meetings that lower rank employees are "not allowed" to go to and change everything, and make things difficult to produce. If you want a job that you just are a production artist all day everyday then this would be a good job for you. If you are looking to just sit in the same position for years and years this is a good job for you. I would not recommend working for Guess. Ever. The company has issues. Cheap product. High prices. Company is losing major money and is closing brands because it can't handle them. CEO will come and yell at your department even though it is the incorrect department to be talking to about something. He sent a voice mail to everyone about if employees don't eat at the cafe he will close it. Threatening everyone for not eating at his cafe. CEO is just unprofessional. Everyone is intimidated and on edge at this company. It is not a friendly environment to work in. Takes forever for something to happen in the company.

    Pros

    Client was more upbeat outgoing. Was lucky to have a great manager, so learned a lot from her.

    Cons

    Upper management was horrible. No appreciation, no consideration. Pay is minimum. Other employees would not show up, therefore you would not be allowed to leave. There were times I started at 9am and left at 7 pm because nobody showed up at 4pm.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to sales associates

    Pros

    When I started, almost a decade ago the culture was different the product was better and the team spirit was there.

    Cons

    The higher levels of management has no care for their employees and the products and quality has dropped significantly wile the customer service policies has gone opposite ways. Is hard sale poor quality product way over priced and with no support from the management or the corporation

    Advice to Management

    Get it back to what it was; the culture, the product and the customer experience.

    Pros

    great if you want to coast. forget about upward mobility unless you're among the select few

    Cons

    top management focuses on the amount of employees going to the cafeteria instead of important issues like employee dissatisfaction and job performance.

    no incentives to do good work because it's not appreciated.

    forget about being promoted from within. the only time that happens is if they can't find someone from the outside and it's only a title promotion, not incentive based.

    prepare for more work without any training and then they wonder why issues and errors arise.

    Advice to Management

    start valuing your employees and empowering them to go good work. if you keep beating down morale, stop wondering why there's no company loyalty.
