    Pros

    The Charleston location of Gildan puts you in one of the best cities in the countries. The job is a secure one and they offer decent benefits.

    Cons

    The is little room for career advancement and no performance incentives. The Charleston location has recently consolidated and acquired a new brand, so the company culture is not defined yet.

    Pros

    A great learning experience in dysfunctional companies.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they're doing more than half the time. Employees are given the tools to fail yet blamed for everything. Lots of finger pointing going on at this place. Margin for error is tremendous due to the amount of manual work that is required. Salaries are pitiful, given the Manhattan location. Free overtime is expected and you are guilt-tripped if you don't comply. Constant disasters and damage control going on. Priorities shift by the minute. The upper management is predominantly male. The women are definitely low-balled, in terms of salary and treated like administrative assistants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read some books on leadership. Stop being greedy and taking on additional business that the company isn't ready for yet. Get some systems in place that work. Treating your employees like failures or idiots for making a mistake doesn't promote growth. It stunts it. Stop expecting people to work past 5pm. Respect a work-life balance. Pay your employees a salary that is pertinent to NYC cost of living.
