I worked at Movado Group full-time

Pros

Decent brand recognition for Movado.

Cons

Poorly managed company. Many there have been there for years and are kept on out of some sense of loyalty by the owners, but these people run the business quite poorly. They are very bad at inclusion of newcomers. Also very little diversity among workers and management. Unless you are hired on at very senior level there is no career path or it will take decades if it ever does happen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to staff other than your inner circle who have been there for years and are ineffective

    Former Employee - Designer in Paramus, NJ

    I worked at Movado Group

    Pros

    dress code, work day hours

    Cons

    The design department is lacking a true creative direction. An accountant is in charge of the design department. There is more of a Devil Wear's Prada approach than a Apple approach. What you know isn't as important as who you impress most with your sense of style and charm. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring over qualified designers. Designer turn around is high for a reason, it's not the designers it's the management. LIsten to your design staff, let people learn, let people speak up, let designers be designers and improve your business! There are 2 managers too many for such a limited about of brands. Embrace and empower your design team.

    I have been working at Movado Group

    Pros

    Relationships between family members are almost family like. The technical changes taking place are setting the company on course for a successful future. Management is strategically motivated.

    Cons

    Post internship hiring is somewhat rare. The ability to work on projects after returning to school, however, is possible and encouraged in most instances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask questions. Be prepared to work hard. Be prepared to be challenged. Think globally. Think about the relationships between systems, people, departments, and functions. Learn to appreciate the art and craft of watchmaking, the timekeeping industry, and horology.
