    Pros

    Beautiful clothes and friendly customers, beautiful area to work in with great restaurants. Unfortunately the good doesn't outweigh the bad.

    Cons

    Bad management, they do not do a good job at training new employees, they can also be bipolar. They make the job sound more luxurious then it really is

    Advice to Management

    Makes the job sound much more luxurious the. It really is

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time here. Everyone in the office was so nice and actually knew my name. The internship program was changed to a paid internship when I got there so that was ideal! I experienced two market weeks and got to do all kinds of fun errands, work with powerpoint and excel, work in the Showroom, and work with samples.

    Cons

    I never got to sit in on meetings and legitimately see what each person does daily.

    The perception of DVF and her brand and the actual experience are completely opposite. Very disappointing.

    Pros

    Clothing allowance was a perk.

    Cons

    Company values, lack of communication, lack of transparency and corporate culture made it difficult to work there. Very disappointing as DVF promotes empowering women and her own organization does not do such.
