    Pros

    70% discount. Taking bold risks.

    Cons

    New staff came/ coming in arrogant. Know-it-all attitude. Ready to "fix" everything and highly critical. Highly political climate. Fear culture came after the layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should be reviewed by their staff so you can learn whether they are good managers. The reserved parking for managers is highly elitist...loose it! Too many of the mid level managers suck up.

    I have been working at True Religion Apparel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic DM leadership, professional environment.

    Cons

    Store managers don't run stores appropriately or according to policies. Commission is on the chopping block. No overtime permitted. Workload is unrealistic at times (numerous window displays, delayed merchandise deliveries, late arrivals, etc.). Regional is not a presence in the businesses - lingers in NY market and plays favorites. Over the last few years the company has become a political mess. Benefits are also from CA, so coverage is minimal unless you live in California.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store-level employees need to be compensated more fairly. Most employees will jump ship if commission is eliminated unless every employee receives at least a 25% wage increase. Create any opportunity at all for tenured sales associates, key holders & assistant managers to travel and/or partake in workshops to nurture talents and promote development form within.

    Pros

    Quality products, and the hours are maleable towards schedules. Overall, a friendly environment with a healthy and positive selling competition between he sales associates.

    Cons

    Upper management is estranged and uninvolved. Management does not follow through with training/development. The company does not offer time and half on holidays, and makes you work all holidays. The company does not offer any form of sick time/vacation to any part time employees, whether sales or management. The pay can be much more for the amount of work that is asked of associates/management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your sales staffs are properly being developed in the store level, as many of the management teams honestly do not care or work with them.

    I have been working at True Religion Apparel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At the time, when I started it was a smaller company and I had a chance to grow within positions. As the company grew, I was really exposed to all divisions. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to understand this fashion/apparel business.

    Cons

    There is not too much opportunity to grow in product development. In my specific situation, compensation was not an opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation and promotions are a great way to keep the really good people at your company. It gives an employee a sense of accomplishment and professional growth. If these opportunities were offered, you would probably not loose the best of the best employees.

    Pros

    None. None of the executives have any garment industry experience.

    Cons

    They don't need to lay-off people.....existing ones are heading out the doors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Running numbers on the computers will not create fearless, passionate, creative people, nor the clothing they design and make.

    Pros

    -Majority of people are great to work with

    Cons

    -retail runs the show, design is seriously loosing their voice
    -company downsized and thus everyone left is picking up 2-3 peoples worth of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -give decent raises and promotions to those who earn it in other depts than retail
    -stop spreading around a budget crisis when a lot of money is wasted in unnecessary events
