    Pros

    This company is large enough for employees to benefit from large company practices yet small enough that there are opportunities to learn the business end-to-end. Involvement in various initiatives allow employees to learn and grow within the organization.

    Cons

    There are few if any Cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the company culture.

    Hire people that can actually manage and develop a department without destroying members of the team.

    Pros

    Good discounts on watches, summer hours, training/watch education, good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism, if you're not in the "click" you have no support, on top of excessive workloads everyone is given several initiatives to work on, bonus not guaranteed, salary is not competitive, abusive behavior encouraged in the creative dept.

    Advice to Management

    Put people with EXPERIENCE in executive roles!

    More proactiveness in training/product knowledge

    Pros

    company picnic, holiday party, ample parking, watch discounts, in-house cafeteria

    Cons

    no opportunities for growth unless you have the 'in' with someone in upper management, even if that means you are not technically qualified, design and pdpm management needs some work, low morale, non motivating...

    Advice to Management

    act like you care when you have unhappy frustrated employees and try dissolve dysfunction

    Pros

    Great sale and discounts on watches good people

    Cons

    - The PDPM dept doesn't have a vision direction or a set plan. This dept doesn't know how to say no or confront difficult people. - Lack of transparency and clear communication all the way from dept lead to directors to managers to jr managers to coordinators. - Lack of motivation to work hard because there is no fair reward system. You could be here for 20 years and still be making half the amount of money to your peer who has been here less than a year - Here is another eg - you can join as a manager and within a span of 2 years become a director and and then VP just because you had the backing of a sr executive. You could be leading a team of 20+ with no real experience of leader mainly because your brown nosing skills Things just don't make sense when it comes to promoting someone or compensating. - lack of clear objectives and direction within this dept. real issues don't get bubbled outside the dept to executive mgmt. Mostly because this dept is controlled and indirectly managed by the leaders in design. So things are steeped under the rug. - there are some strong workers in this dept but the mani issues stem from lack of LEADERSHIP in the dept. This dept lacks seasoned and professional leadership. - this dept is very much influenced and indirectly controlled by the leaders in design. There is a lot of "ill treatment " and "yelling" to the point where many have left the company. - we need a strong sensible and seasoned dept lead who doesn't dance to the tunes of design or brand. Someone who is bold to back up this dept and stand behind the team. Someone who is supportive objective and a true leader.

    Advice to Management

    The performance of the leadership of this department needs to be questioned given the state of this dept.
