    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 for 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.

    fun brand with loyal clientele and growing popularity

    Cons

    promotions given to people who were not necessarily the top workers..
    usually cute gay males got promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote hardworking individuals rather than partyers within the company.

    Great reputation and work environment but popularity influences promotions

    I worked at Marc Jacobs International

    Pros

    The two best reasons are the reputation and the environment. Marc Jacobs has a great reputation as an innovative and well known brand. People in general are impressed when they hear you work there, it's a highly coveted company to work for, and it'll make your resume stand out if you're applying for a new job (which helps in the ever so popular fashion industry!)

    The environment is young, casual, and friendly. It's less intimidating than other fashion companies and you don't feel ostracized if you aren't fashionable. But of course, for the most part everyone is (and you probably will be too after awhile!) The company has a decent employee discount and an even better calendar of sample sales. There's also a legendary holiday party in December.

    Cons

    In my experience people are often hired and promoted based on popularity, not competency or experience. The pay, like any other fashion company, is on the low side. But it is comparable to other fashion companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More rigorous reviews and feedback that get incorporated into promotions. This would help with the above problem.
