    I worked at Capelli NY full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None except for a few friendly employees (not managers) who are probably nice because they are chained to their desk 10-12 hours a day and desperate for someone to take some of the weight off of their shoulders.

    Cons

    Just read the other reviews, the positive review was most likely posted by management in an attempt to salvage their reputation on here. It is a sad and depressing place to work, you can hear a pin drop or a manager yelling or being condescending. Nothing but data entry and administrative tasks, low pay you punch a clock, no small talk or collaboration, cameras everywhere (think big brother), low pay, dated methods, not a creative or free thinking environment-you are expected to be a robot, no dental, horrible PDM system, managers are very suspicious of new employees not a welcoming feeling, unorganized database but yet obsessive about their "procedures", they give you a title but its just ceremonial, no fluidity in the product lines, did I mention "procedures", tons of paperwork everywhere (this is the 21st century by the way), all design and development is done overseas so don't even think you will provide any input, vague job listing and they pretend to be interested in your experience during the interviews. But all you will do is administrative work no matter how qualified you are or what your experience is. Dont drink the kool-aid, KEEP LOOKING.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink your business plan or close your doors. And STOP wasting talented peoples time, hire interns....

    Pros

    Learn a lot in a short amount of time

    Cons

    Many Cons with this company!
    - Senior level management is verbally abusive towards their associates who work hard
    - Credit is never given for hard work put in
    -They expect you to stay long hours without compensation
    -Extremely disorganized
    -senior level management loves to criticize their team members in front of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect others and learn how to communicate the right way. This reflects the culture of the company as a whole and Im sure it trickles down from the CEO to mistreat others
