    I have been working at Alpargatas USA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment / dress code. Honest people!
    Brand and results trending up. Strong team.
    Retail and brand extensions are opportunities.
    Many brand lovers!

    Cons

    Not for everyone! You need to be able to adapt. Small company environment. Team is very new. Fast pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on track!

    I worked at Alpargatas USA part-time

    Pros

    time off, dress code - i was told i have to enter at least 5 words for Pros but sadly there are no pros to working in this office

    Cons

    culture is horrible, same with management, most of the office does what they please and no one communicates. if you do a bad job you get praised, but if you work hard and do your job you get scolded. the entire office hates each other and is generally disrespectful but behind your back - so watch out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get new management.. all of upper management are incompetent including president.

    I worked at Alpargatas USA

    Pros

    At best the casual attire and diversity are the only pros.

    Cons

    Unorganized, micro managing senior staff, high turnover, no room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider having more interaction with your teams. Find ways to keep the turnover to a lower number.

    Pros

    Easy work and easy hours, if you can put up with working with/for idiots all day

    Cons

    Bad management, incompetent employees, high turnover, low pay, no opportunity for growth. HR (one person) essentially runs the company. If she doesn't like you (and even if she does), you're screwed. They give senior titles to unqualified people in order to pay them next to nothing.
