    Friendly work environment for a great cause, but much nepotism and no real opportunity for career growth within company.

    Pros

    This is a very small tight-knit company. There are less than 30 full-time employees, and the social environment is generally very friendly and non-stressful. In addition, the benefits are excellent if you are a full-time employee. If just an intern, it is still a great internship and experience in New York City.

    Cons

    In terms of a career, unless you're related by family or friends to the upper management, your likelihood of advancement in this company is slim to none. There is a lot of nepotism in this company and yet no room for growth. In addition, the pay scale is pretty arbitrary and not necessarily a reflection of your skill-set or education. While the social atmosphere is very friendly, it can also be very petty and cliquish, much like high school. The company culture has a large emphasis on the NY fashion scene, which is arguably contradictory and completely unrelated to their cause to help save patients of blood cancer. There are also far more female employees than males, so if you're a male, you may feel a bit like an outsider.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas of lower employees--not just upper management. Have a fair and open pay scale that is a reflection of one's skill set and education. Eliminate the pervasive nepotism. Hire more males!
