    there was never any down size at warnaco,because we all got along,there was one down size at warnaco and that was when we all lost our jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upper management was pretty good, because they were aways there for the employees when they needed any help with any issues.

    I worked at Warnaco Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In general, it was a pretty laid-back atmosphere. Most people were friendly and most executives were approachable. Employees, for the most part, were treated like people. Occasional "thank yous" like ice cream parties would pop up.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a disconnect between different divisions and departments. This was especially evident in the IT world. Collaboration overall could be much stronger. Fairly high turnover, especially in the design areas, would put a strain on resources and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do more to keep talent, especially in the design areas as well as IT. This could be done by offering more competitive salaries and higher than insulting 2-4% annual raises.

    Pros

    Traditional corporate environment with good salaries, benefits & profit sharing.

    Cons

    Once you hit the glass ceiling - that's it. I was hard pressed to find challenges in my role after a few years & there was a lot of re-structuring in design department on an on-going bases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there are no way to promote a designer, they should be allowed to switch categories to allow for new skill development & freshness in the product line (ie...knits designer & bottoms designer switch positions).

    Pros

    Local management strives to build into the local associates. They voice the local concerns to the corporate partners even when it seems to fall on deaf ears. Local associates are provided many small things such as luncheons and various award programs.

    Cons

    Local headcounts are so tight that it leaves no room growing outside of the current position. Although growth is encouraged verbally, time constraints leave little time for the activities that will lead to the growth.

    Pros

    Getting a huge employee discount on Warnaco's brands, loading up my wardrobe with many giveaway sample items, excellent health benefits, good holidays and vacations, good 401(k) plan, decent profit sharing. It also has a somewhat relaxed, creative and open culture.

    Cons

    Limited growth in some areas, like IT, especially depending on your location. Fairly high staff turnover (although I don't know if it's unusual for that industry.) Raises and promotions are minimal unless you are already higher up.

    I worked at Warnaco Group

    Pros

    Corporate atmosphere was friendly and supportive. Everyone is willing to educate employees to make their experience and job position fulfilling and well-rounded. Learned a great deal about the retail industry as well as financial planning.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay and long hours lead to burned out employees who ended up walking around the office multiple times a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management could benefit from some seminars on how to work with employees. Praise seldoms comes after hard work and it seems some employees receive preferential treatment in regards to bonuses and position advancement.

    tell your employees what you want from them, don't just expect perfection when offering minimal guidance.
