I have been working at Kellwood full-time (less than an year)Pros
Casual jeans always office, very laidback and great work-life balance (I only know about the corporate department managers though), Company does a lot of little things for the employees like seasonal lunch parties,fall, spring, etc. not just Christmas, opportunities for employee discounts on the brands, quarterly company-wide updates on the business from the execs - it's nice to know what's going on in the company you work for and how your part helps. Excellent tuition program! I can finally go back to school! Also, if you get tired or bored with your position and need a change of scene, you can apply to transfer to one of the other areas/departments if there's room and learn a whole new side of the accounting/finance.Cons
Communication between the different accounting areas is not the best and since each group can only see/access part of the whole financial picture (checks and balances thing I guess), it is very necessary to relay your info to others in clear detail. Some related processes need to be cleaned up and updated but making that change is slow going when everyone is always pretty busy.
Closing every month is a three day deadline which can mean working late every closing for some depending on how big your part of the closing is.
The exec management keeps changing. Change is good, and this company is always changing since it is a fashion profile company, but the current execs have only been in for less than two years and are already going off with one of the brands and Kellwood has yet another new CEO. Hopefully the company vision and direction don't change too drastically again. I personally think the new CEO is of the same mind as the last, which is good.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
