Management style changes across the board mean a disappointing future for employees

I worked at J. Crew

Pros

Information sharing as far as sales goals, projections, and earnings. Discounts are reasonable, especially on sale items ( 50% off).

Cons

When I started at J.Crew there was an "across the board" management re-structuring. It became far less personal between Employer-Employee, meaning less flexibility on hours, and days availability. The professionalism and competency of management was laughable, even at the flagship Manhattan store that I was working for. Overnight floor sets, inventory, and re-stocking became nearly impossible.

    Pros

    Some extremely talented people work here... each and every person's voice can be heard - whether by your supervisor or by Mickey Drexler. Each person can make a difference and the people who make a difference are recognized and applauded. Great team and group of people. Of course every day is not perfect but it is what you make of it. People are supported... not cut throat like at other fashion companies.

    Cons

    Some people in top positions are pretty clueless... it is difficult for their supervisors or for Mickey to know the truth about them. Eventually the worst ones are usually found out and end up leaving. But they held alot of people and the company back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more in touch with what is really going on. People will be afraid to say bad things about their supervisors who aren't doing a good job. It is up to you to find out the truth.
