I have been working at Jimmy Choo

Pros

Powerhouse in the global fashion industry, the products are notorious for celebrity attention and media recognition. Fun clientele to work with, you can make lots of connections.

Cons

Tight ship, sales people packed into usually small boutiques and asked to clientele and sell, sell. sell. Lots of catty politics and egos in managment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an ear to the street thats where the actions at, listen to your employees they are your soldiers.

    I worked at Jimmy Choo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generally, the work life balance is fair. Sometimes events take place which means very long hours, these days can be very tough and exhausting. Company values and office culture is typical of most retail fashion sectors.

    Cons

    In the past the perks were Sample sales. I'm not sure that these still take place. Training is consistent for every season with the usual updates in the inspiration for the new collections. Leadership is strong and tough!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More perks, training and space to grow would be very beneficial to the company in the long term.

    I worked at Jimmy Choo as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Very limited - people love the brand and are committed because of that. The business delivers in spite of itself and its (predominantly) weak and self serving leadership who appear to expect the world without giving anything back to very hard working and talented people

    Cons

    CEO needs to take control and take a good look at the trends within certain functions (especially HR ironically) including turnover driven by intolerable working conditions, duplicitous, lazy and politically driven leadership and an appalling approach to people. Abuse of interns including not paying them for full-time work was also an issue that was swept under the carpet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership in areas other than retail is non existent. Understanding of how to be competitive in luxury in terms of benefits - no pension scheme, poor holiday allocation, unreasonable work life balance but great discount means that this will only ever be a stopping off point for people on their CV rather than somewhere for people to have a career.
