    Pros

    You can work in fashion and tell people something you learned in this company, which is really cool. I met Marc Jacobs!

    Cons

    Boring tasks. I generally use Excel everyday and not very creative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Girls are best! You can chat with them about the new magazine, labels and gossips.

    Pros

    Good name to put on your resume. Sometimes they throw you Samples as a 'thank you'. Got to watch Marc work before a fashion show.

    Cons

    No one will learn your name even as you do their expense reports and get their coffee. Lots of sitting around doing nothing. No one cares to actually teach you anything other than how to hide in a closet and help models get dressed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show even a small amount to appreciation for interns. And acknowledgement even

    great people to work with and very friendly environment. Great creative and interprenorial energy.

    Pros

    you can learn a lot since you are very independent in what you do. And it's very easy to get along with coworkers. Most of them are very nice and helpful

    Cons

    If you like a very structured/corporate environment, this is not a company for you. Here you need to be interprenorial and very indipendent.

    Very good, slightly unorganized

    I worked at Marc Jacobs International as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    You do actual work, lots of adobe illustrator, no pouring coffee or anything like that. Some xeroxing like any other internship, some going out and running errands. Mostly it's just drawing on Illustrator and doing mockups of jewelry. You get a free handbag at the end of every season, and there's leftover leather too that you can take if you want.

    Cons

    Sometimes the computer files are jumbled and unorganized, which makes getting work done efficiently difficult. I wish interns would get paid something because we do pretty much the same work that freelancers do.
