    Pros

    workforce is vibrant and fashionable. Dress code is casual and sample sales are excellent. Many talented people culture is not overly cut throat many people are willing to share knowledge and help you grow. Having a gym and cafeteria on site is great. Very family friendly, no one looks down on you for having a family and they allow you time to be with them. Vacation package is very generous.

    Cons

    There are a lot of inviduals in c level management that are complete idiots, shame really. CEO seems to be at loss for how to turn company around and just keeps shedding brands. Divisional associates that do not work for upper managements "pet" brands get little to no company wide recognition. Juicy, lucky, kate ENOUGH! There are other brands in the portfolio recognize them. Also constant layoffs have left many people on edge and overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should implement peer based review process so associates can get recognition for accomplishments that management may not always be aware of. Also if subordinates were allowed to review their superiors it would help them identify faults within their own management styles and also weed out some of these management duds that have the gift of gab and not much else.
