Pros

Sales experience, well known product, networking with great clientele, small staff size, fun and laid-back work enviroment, hourly wage is extremely competitive compared to similar retail stores in the area.

Cons

No raises, commission bonus plans do not adequately reward sales associates from smaller revenue stores even if they are consistently hitting their monthly budgets. Outdated inventory system can be frustrating and administrative staff tend to be condescending to line level employees and store level managers. I feel like they think they are in a more prestigious position than what they really are, and are slow to go out of their way to help track down product and transfer product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to realize that quick decisions that are not thought through well, can result in exponentially more work for line level staff and store-level mangement. Put yourself in the shoes of a store manager before you significantly alter his/her daily responsibilities regarding budget, paperwork, and enforcement of new policies.

Allow store managers to run their stores how they want, including time-off, daily scheduling, lunch allowances, budgets, and access to the computer and internet.

    Pros

    Friendly environment (for the most part), Great recognition for work done, Dress Code, Not very strict.
    Though there are a lot con, the place is actually fun to work at.

    Cons

    Hit or miss management. Senior designers aren't given enough say. Not design oriented as much as should be. Design is business oriented, which leaves inovation left to side. The result is pretty much the same stuff being pumped out. There is a lot of talk about transparency, but there really isn't much. Late nights become a norm. Always talk about improvements, but theyre always VERY far down the road. All the focus is about Movado, with rarely any mention of the great work license brands do other than their numbers. HORRENDOUS discount. Designers do not receive watches they design and there is pretty much no mention of them once the design process is done.

    It's great if you're in "the clique"

    Pros

    Summer Fridays, employee discounts, casual dress code, staff (not senior management).
    Most people don't work very late.

    Cons

    Favoritism abounds. Senior Management is aloof and distant unless you are in the charmed circle.
    Benefits are expensive. Salaries are low for the area. Clique-ish.

    They make you submit pay stubs from your last job before they make a final offer, which I have never heard of before or since.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the chasm between senior management and the rest of the staff. Stop all the closed door meetings (agree with the previous reviewer - creates an atmosphere of paranoia).
