I worked at ESCADA full-time (Less than a year)
Working on the corporate IT team, I had a cool manager, who showed me the ropes, and was willing to teach me & let me do various projects. I got to travel to a few stores to setup the back office equipment, registers, firewall tunnels, and audio equipment.
A lot of the store had old POS systems, and were always breaking down, or losing connection. Had to always get that back up and running instead of just replacing the equipment with new stuff, but that was due to monetary issues, and the bankruptcy filing at the time prior to the purchase. Aside from the technology, the brand is like a dinosaur. Bankruptcy & monetary issues led to several corporate members leaving for something new, or being laid off.
Advice to Management
Escada's designs are what is killing it now. The designers are still living on the glory days when the rest of the world has moved on. Bring some liveliness to the brand, and you'll attract younger buys with money.
