    Pros

    -Work-Life Balance -Decent pay and benefits; summer Fridays are nice -Casual dress code -Nice enough people except some of upper management could change

    Cons

    -Little opportunity to grow -Many positions are not well paid

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to ask the questions be prepared to take action to make it a better place to work. Don't talk to talk if you aren't prepared to walk the walk.

    Pros

    Great place to work; wonderful people Relaxed Atmosphere Flexible Hours

    Cons

    Little potential for growth and career advancement

    Advice to Management

    Warnaco is a well-run company but should continue to allow lower-level employees with opportunity for advancement rather than looking to hire from outside the company.

    Pros

    fair salary, great benefits, good quality of life balance, good time off. summer fridays

    Cons

    cannot comment on upper management (CEO, COO etc) but VP and down seem to be clueless in the area and field i am employed in. My direct manager only knows how to manage by intimidation and has a personality disorder so i wouldnt judge based on that. overall good solid company

    Advice to Management

    hire some management that knows about other areas than there expertise if you are going to assign them to run other types of businesses. Allow direct reports to voice opinion on their manager when manager is inappopriate and borderline abusive.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Warnaco Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Field locations are given independent decision making authority to satisfy customers. Corporate support is good and encourages questions from the field.

    Cons

    CEO doesn't practice what she preaches, always looking out for number one while pretending to care for the little guy.

    Advice to Management

    Provide feedback to the top when message is not resonating with the intended recipient. When in the field, interact with employees more to get candid feedback.

    Pros

    restructure, a lot of changes-- could be a pro, too early to know.

    Cons

    more opportunities, however... hiring outside to fill.

    Advice to Management

    hire people at the bottom, not just the top!

    Pros

    De werkomstandigheden zijn goed en de omgeving is informeel, managers zijn in het algemeen flexibel en begripvol, sommige zijn zeer gekwalificeerd en geven om hun werknemers. Informatiestroom van het senior management naar de werknemers toe is verbeterd.

    The work conditions are good and the environment is informal, managers are in general flexible and understanding, and some are very qualified and care about employees. Corporate information flow from semior management to employees has improved.

    Cons

    Projecten worden vaak opgestart maar nooit afgewerkt, het is moeilijk uit te vissen wie waar verantwoordelijk voor is. Doelen op hoger niveau zijn min of meer duidelijk, maar de weg om er te geraken is meestal nogal vaag en veranderlijk, wat planning moeilijk maakt, evenals het krijgen van eventuele betrokkenheid van belanghebbenden.

    Projects are often started but never finished, it is hard to find out who is accountable for what. The high level goals are more or less clear, but the path to get there is usually pretty vague and changing, which makes planning hard, as well as getting any commitment from stakeholders.
