I worked at Garan

Pros

Good Salary for NY location
You will learn a lot about analytics within the fashion industry
Some great people there who are passionate about success

Cons

No Work/Family Balance.. At alll.. Period...
Sr. Management difficult to work with in most cases
Nepetism is a huge conflict of interest problem that has never been addressed
Unrealistic deadlines
Single account (Wal MArt) no real customer base

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start by getting new and fresh management to shake things up. The company has turned into a "clique" company that really does not care about those who are not a part of the inner circle.

    I worked at Garan

    Pros

    Good Salaries,
    Prime location,
    fast paced work environment,
    Highly analytical

    Cons

    Favorites are played with pretty much everything involving people development
    Works like a clique factory in the organization
    Rampant nepetism in the corporation (VP's giving jobs to relatives)
    Extreme work hours with minimal direction
    Little room for advancement.
    Always fearing for your job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach upper managment how to relate to employees. Everything should not end in managment losing their cool and yelling. Develop career plans for top talent rather than stifling them into the ground.

    I have been working at Garan

    Pros

    Garan is a very profitable company. I have been lucky to work in a department with great people but that is unusual in this company. I have been able to grow in my career at a very fast pace.

    Cons

    Garan has the worst benefits package of any company I have ever worked for or even heard of. Employees are considered expendable and there is a very high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect. Understand that employees are the backbone of the company and start recruiting the "A" players. Spend the money to increase the benefits package and pay employees at a competitive rate no matter where they are working.
