Pros

Very generous in the provision of resources for your work

Cons

Company mistakenly believes that "culture" and "cool" equates to success. Just because they provide what net cretins want in terms of cheap overstocked products that this amounts to a company that is "significant" and justifies aggressive deadlines as well as an upper-management culture of being obnoxious and self-assured.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit stroking yourselves your company is just a retailer it does not do anything of importance.

    Fast growing company yet no room to advance

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    - Occasional catered lunches.
    - Fast growing company means stability in a tough job market.
    - Pretty good insurance packages
    - More organized than other companies I've worked at
    - A starter job that gets your foot in the door of fashion.
    - Not a lot of overtime is needed overall.

    Cons

    - Not much room for advancement. I'm not just speaking as a disgruntled former employee either, my team was close and honest with eachother about our concerns and we all wanted out.
    - Nepotism runs rampant. People with less experience and skills will surpass you due to being hired by their friends. Honest hard work goes unrewarded.
    - Pay is well below industry standards. I saw this as a fast growing startup with room for advancement so I overlooked it but they aren't a startup anymore and I like to think it's due to the hard work of people like me who had been there early helping the company take off. We all celebrated each round of investments we got with fake smiles, because employees don't see a dime of it outside of congratulatory cupcakes. We were bought by Nordstrom and still no change.
    - High turnover rate. With the combination of low pay and no personal growth, people leave frequently. This also means that the company is mostly run by really young unaccomplished people.
    - Vacation and sick time is not adequate.
    - Work was boring and not fulfilling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a company wide audit of salaries and actually measure them against industry standards. You'll see that you fall short.
