Intern in New York

Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at DvF full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat, friendly and approachable employees
Good employee perks especially for sample sales

ConsThe midtown design office was very cramped and old but the worst part was that interns were put on an entirely different level in a work room type area.

Generous Clothing Allowance, but they do not pay well or promote from within enough

Amazing people, very unorganized.

Merchandising Assistant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at DvF full-time for more than a year

ProsDVF herself is something to behold, she's a character that you can't take your eyes off of. I had the opportunity to learn from a few very smart women who graduated from Cornell, UCLA and Stanford Business School.

ConsVery unorganized and no structure. There wasn't enough work for the Merchandising team and often times we would just sit there without any tasks to complete. Communication between departments is difficult because no one seems to know who is accountable for what.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring people because you think they are pretty, hire competent people with experience. Solidify the structure and encourage communication between departments.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Inspiring Company

Showroom Intern (Current Employee)
Paris (France)

I have been working at DvF as an intern for less than a year

ProsI interned with the London office during Paris market week. Great product and good company mission and values. The work environment is positive and motivating. Staff works together and helps each other out when needed.

ConsInterns were not treated well by staff. Staff was pretty catty and could be overheard gossiping about one another.

Good place to work with great benefits

Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
Bicester, England (UK)

I have been working at DvF full-time for more than a year

ProsDiane Von Fustenberg offers excellent benefits, good salary and great training to the staff.
You also get in touch with multinational custumers.

ConsLike a lot of places in the retail, you need to be flexible and work long hours; christmas and banking holidays.

Fashion Week Intern in Paris

Showroom Intern (Former Employee)
Paris (France)

I worked at DvF as an intern for less than a year

ProsDiane von Furstenberg is a fun brand with strong company values. I enjoyed being a part of it for my brief internship. I was interning in the London office's showroom in Paris, and the sales team seemed to enjoy their jobs.

ConsThe negatives were the long hours for the staff, and what seemed like a very clique-y work environment. Also, the majority of the employees did not treat the interns well at all.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Place

ProsYou meet with really interesting clients and have the opportunity to grow within the company to higher levels of management.

ConsIt is only a women's label. Not for those interested in men's clothing. No other cons for this lifestyle brand.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is an easy flow of communication bewteen the different levels of management. Would not change anything as of yet.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
