    Very positive experience as a Summer Intern.

    Product Development (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe work environment is very casual and they give a lot of freedom to their interns. Interns interact with people of all different departments, so it provided an in depth understanding of the fashion industry.

    ConsThe office was difficult to get to and the area was not very nice.

    Coorporate

    Product Development (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsLots of good people to work with, friendly professional environment. Constantly learning and career development is encouraged.

    ConsRoles and responsibilities are constantly changing so the job you hire into might change into something different. Regular restructuring of teams.
    High demands on employees in some departments and others much less, inconsistent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInteract with those who will do the work when making changes rather than just other upper management. Make decisions that have longevity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Coach Internship

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCoporate like. Very organized and employees are nice. So many things to learn! and my manager was very nice and gave me legitimate research work to do throughout the summer.

    ConsLiving in NYC is expensive. With the minimum intern wage, I can barely afford living in the city. Also, HR/talent department are so busy they never replied back to any of my emails. I had to force myself to call them every day until they pick up.

    Overworked, underpaid

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIf you like a very corporate setting Coach is a great environment. They also offer incredible benefits such as classes, great discounts, team building and health coverage. I met wonderful people there as well. It was the people I worked with that made it bearable but the workload was overwhelming and we weren't compensated accordingly.

    ConsYou will work long hours for little money. Takes forever to move up/get promoted. Very political and the company is currently undergoing a lot of changes. Improvements could be made if they increased head count in the right departments. They lead you to believe that you will be promoted to motivate you and then don't follow through.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement doesn't reward people enough.

    Crash course in corporate culture

    Great company at turning point.

    Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsFinancially, it is a great company to work for and I admired their mission statement. If you are working with people who love those mission statement all the time, it might be a dream company for you.

    ConsNo structure for long term career growth. Although they have a very lengthy/detailed review/touch base processes, I felt managements were just filling out blank spaces. Too many short term goals which did not connect with their long term goals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe this might be happening to all large corporations, however there are huge inequality in so many things between upper/middle managements and every day persons. Integrity were often compromised especially in new leadership team.

    Great Experience.

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsChallenging, competent management staff, great leadership development platform. Growth potential, great salaries.

    ConsOverworked- all are expected to work long hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe HR tides need to change. The relationship between Sr Management and HR is too strong, the allegiance is too often with tenured relationships with the Sr Mgr the HR generalist rather than with the employee or overall for the company.

    Great but struggling company

    Director (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat coworkers ad collaborative environment
    Company with a global presence and legacy history
    Nice products and new ready to wear collection

    ConsLot of pressure from competitors. Talented people are leaving. The work environment has drastically changed in worse after the poor Wall Street performances. Leaders are also changing but the Senior managers are not. Too many VPs are turning the company into a big tank not capable of reacting fast to the challenges from smaller companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not panic. Despite the calm shown by Executives in front of the press and the stakeholders, the employees perception is totally different with people quitting everyday and some lays off. Work on that from the inside.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
