Zero Strategy

Associate Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros-Truly a friendly bunch of people. Hardly any 'bitchy' fashion types
-good work/life balance
-if you're a complacent type, you can surely be a 'lifer'.
-good vacation days and benefits

Cons-Only way to get promoted is to stay much longer than necessary, or to get an offer elsewhere and hope for a counter.
-no marketing strategy whatsoever
-constant and moronic changes to appease business needs on the day to day, vs any kind of longterm strategy.
-Had first year of no bonuses in company history, and i believe it will be a trend now.

Advice to Senior Management-fire yourselves, and hire people who understand what a strategy is and how to implement one.
-The nepotism is demoralizing, and you are losing talented people because of it. More importantly, be covert about it, because the people you give a halo to are embarrassingly dumb, and make you look the same.
-Pretending to pull the wool over your employees eyes is offensive and results in higher turnover.

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