Former Employee - Product Design Associate in New York, NY
Former Employee - Product Design Associate in New York, NY

I worked at Capelli NY full-time (less than an year)

Pros

- plm system
- huge showroom on premises

Cons

- Like other reviews; in interviews they mention several times that people who work there have been there for years making you think this might be a great company you can create a career.
- everyone including the executives is miserable and they will let you know.
- no direction and horrible quality product
- Remedial work load for an experienced candidate
- there are bins; everywhere unorganized
- product designers? but no actual designing involved
- zero culture

    good stepping stone

    Former Employee - Product Design Assistant
    Former Employee - Product Design Assistant

    I worked at Capelli NY

    Pros

    It is a good place to get your foot in the door, I didn't feel it was a place to make a career, just a stepping stone

    Cons

    There was no growth opportunities. There were many people there at the time I was that felt this way. As many times as I talked with my manager about being given more work, I was just yes-ed. I was there for 2 years and was still doing the same thing as day one. My department went through 5 people within a year, and all these people left for other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they need to take more interest in the employees that really want to learn and grow with the company, I was upset that as many times as I said I wanted to advance and learn I was never taken up on this.
